Playing God Much…?

When one critically examines what has been going on in our nation, specifically, people protesting capitalism, exhorting the works of Karl Marx, Mao Zedong, while advocating that our nation move toward a socialist means of governance, these as well as other notions definitely gains our interest in actually who is wasting time on misspent adventures.

Furthermore, this trumped-up politically correct notion of somehow waging “war on women” sooner than later is bound to create the unmistakable sounds of Dr. Victor Frankenstein or Nazi human involved experiments, and the two most critically irresponsible ideologies of all time.

Namely one being “gender selection” and of course immediately following up with the phenomena known as creating “Designer Babies.” And to think that with all of the serious problems various societies, cultures, and the earth are experiencing, one would think that there are far more important matters the legislators of this country should be tending too.

The U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday rejected legislation banning abortions based on the sex of the fetus in a vote that keeps the election-year spotlight on an emotionally charged issue.

The “Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act,” would have subjected doctors to a five-year prison term if they performed abortions intended to select gender. Medical and mental health professionals also would have had to report suspected violations to authorities or face a one-year sentence.

The mostly party-line vote of 246-168 fell short of the two-thirds majority required for passing this bill.

Republicans scheduled the vote a week after a public opinion poll showed that a near-record 50 percent of Americans described themselves as “pro-life,” a label for those who back legal protections for fetuses, including outlawing abortion.

The Gallup poll showed that those describing themselves as “pro-choice” – those favoring the right of women to choose whether to bring a pregnancy to term – had declined to a record low 41 percent, compared to 47 percent in July 2011.

Democrats attacked the legislation, portraying it as another example of a “war on women” by Republicans, which also included votes against equal pay and some healthcare benefits.

Democrats decried the bill as a “backdoor attempt” to stifle all abortions. But the vote put them in a tricky position by exposing them to potential campaign attacks for appearing to support a widely abhorred practice.

Republicans, also jockeying for the women’s vote in November elections, argued that the “real war against women” is in an increasing number of abortions of female fetuses due to preferences for boys among some ethnic groups.

“Simply put, what this bill does is give baby girls the same chance at life as baby boys,” said Republican Representative Marsha Blackburn during Wednesday’s debate on the House floor. “A vote against ending sex-selection abortion is a vote in favor of gender bias and female gendercide.”

Knowing that the Human Right Campaign, the largest lobbying organization for the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgendered (LGBT) individuals is involved as the special interest group and major funding organization – what makes me curious is where are the basic human rights of the unborn child?
