Sex Selection Abortion - #3933 - House Rejects Sex-Selection Abortion Ban - The Blaze (2)VIDEO: Second Video Shows Planned Parenthood Clinic Advising on How to Get a Sex-Selection Abortion - UPDATE: White House Opposes Sex Selection Abortion Ban - Hot Air (3) Support for Abortion Drops to Record Lows - Hot Air (4) Gallup Releases Report Detailing Americans' Opinions on Abortion - The Blaze

The House on Thursday fell short in an effort to ban abortions based on the sex of the fetus as Republicans and Democrats made an election-year appeal for women’s votes. The legislation would have made it a federal crime to perform or force a woman to undergo a sex-based abortion, a practice most common in some Asian countries where families wanting sons abort female fetuses. It was a rare social issue to reach the House floor in a year when the economy has dominated the political conversation, and Republicans, besieged by Democratic claims that they are waging a war on women, struck back by trying to depict the vote as a women’s rights issue. “It is violence against women,” said Rep.

Twenty Democrats voted for it, while seven Republicans opposed it. The bill’s author, Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., said before the vote that regardless of the outcome, the point would be made. “When people vote on this, the world will know where they really stand.”  Read more...........  In Va. 5th District Robert Hurt voted for the ban, thank you, I appreciate your vote.  To see how your congressman voted...........
