    PRENDA - Prenatal Non-Descrimination Act

    In China, they know all about aborting girls in order to try again for a boy. Recent undercover videos are showing that Planned Parenthood is advising the same thing in the US for mothers who wanted one gender and are getting another. Kill it and try again. Should aborting girls (or boys) in order to try again for a different gender be legal? Or is that a form of sex discrimination? Same with race. What if they discover a gay gene? Should parents be allowed to abort a gay child and try again for a straight one?
    Get informed: UNICEF foreign adoption policy is killing orphans and the US gives $132 million to UNICEF every year. Stop the madness.

    I don't see why it should be illegal. Really, Roe V. Wade was not determined that women are allowed abortions only for certain reasons. And you can only discriminate against people. You can't discriminate against fetuses.

    Also, the only viedo i can find of this is where a couple, posing as patients, asked about aborting their fetus if it turns out to be a girl and the person helping just told them how late you can wait for an abortion and how long it normally is til you can tell if a fetus is boy or girl. I highly doubt there's a video out there where a Planned parenthood worker is actively talking someone in to doing something like that. Unless there are more videos out there that I just haven't seen or something.

    Re: PRENDA - Prenatal Non-Descrimination Act

    This poll lacks my choice which is that no abortion of a healthy, normal child should be a choice. Once you allow choosing then who is to say what the REAL motive may be? When we allowed the "health" of the mother to be considered then 'depression' of the mother over simply being pregnant became a valid reason to terminate the child. It is far too easy to state reason "A", when the real reason is "Z", once you know the of it. Abortion is now pratically just another form of birth control.

    I do not see why people who are for legalized abortion would care if someone has an abortion for gender selection.

    So just to be clear, if a gay gene is discovered and a religious group begins preaching about getting your unborn baby tested and how late you can have an abortion, you'd be just fine with that?

    I don't think the abortionist would care one way or the other if someone is aborting their baby because of gender or aborting their baby because of sexual preference.

    Yes, I think it should be legal under the same circumstances that any elective abortion would be legal. And quite frankly, if abortion is legal at all, I don't see how you could put a stop to the practice. After all, it's not like the mother has to tell the person performing the abortion why she's having one (or give them an honest reason).
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Course not. They're mercenary killers. They don't care as long as they get paid.

    Since I believe in a womans right to chose why would I care if she chose to abort because of gender?
