Party of Death Refuses to Fight Gendercide
The Democrats have become pathological. Now they even refuse to limit "a woman's right to choose" when the woman kills other women simply for being women.
"Democrats in the House of Representatives prevented passage of a bill that would ban sex-selection abortions. The legislation needed a two-thirds vote and Democrats voted overwhelmingly against the legislation after President Barack Obama and Planned Parenthood came out in opposition.
With a 246-168 vote, the bill did not obtain the two-thirds majority necessary to pass. Republicans voted for the bill on a 226-7 margin while Democrats opposed banning sex-selection abortions on 161-20 vote margin."
This is not a far-away problem--it occurs right here in the U.S. and especially in California. On April 17 an article called "Gendercide is Here: Sex-Selective Abortions in California," (written by us) appeared in California Catholic Daily. We wrote:
"On December 11, 2011, Forbes magazine published an article entitled “America’s Male Only Child Policy?” which began “Where are all of the girls? Two Columbia University researchers, Douglas Almond and Lena Edlund, were poring over U.S. Census data when they noticed a statistical anomaly: Americans from China, Korea, and India have relatively few daughters….
“Almond and Edlund quickly realized that they were looking at a statistical impossibility—a famine of females. It simply couldn’t be random chance. You can’t flip a coin and make it come up tails this many times in a row.
“They published their findings in the peer-reviewed Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. “We find that the sex ratio of the oldest child to be normal, but that of subsequent children to be heavily male if there is no previous son.” The natural ratio of boys to girls at birth is 1.05:1. Among people of Chinese, Korean or Indian descent, the distribution of boys to girls fell in the normal range for the first child. But the second is child is much more likely to be a boy; the ratio of males to females was 1.17, Almond and Edlund note. For the third child, the distribution tilts even more male—boys outnumbered girls by 50% (1.51:1) if there was no previous son.”
The problem is particularly acute in California with its high number of Asian immigrants. On April 3 this year an article published in the “Ultrasound Digital Community” section of the auntminnie.com website profiled the work of Dr. G. Sharat Lin, of Advanced Imaging Associates of Fremont, California. On March 31, Dr. Lin addressed the convention of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine in Phoenix. His subject was “Female-Male Birth Gender Ratios in Asian Subpopulations in Santa Clara County, California.”
The article noted: “Continuing a trend identified for prior years, several California counties had abnormally low female-to-male birth ratios among Asians in 2010, a development that was associated with the proliferation of keepsake ultrasound centers that offer gender-determination services…For several years, Lin has been examining birth-gender ratios (female births per 1,000 male births) to investigate if commercial access to 4D keepsake ultrasound studies could be facilitating gender-specific abortion among Asians in California.
“In 2010, he presented research at the AIUM meeting that hinted at a relationship between keepsake ultrasound and birth-gender ratios in the state….Lin found that Asian ethnic groups in the county who were known to have a traditional gender preference for boys had clearly lower female-to-male birth ratios than those Asian ethnic groups who did not have a preference…. Statewide, Asians have had the lowest birth-gender ratio (considered to be less than 930 female births per 1,000 male births) among ethnic groups in California from 1995 to 2010.”
The Republicans are trying to stop this. The Democrats thwarted them--and they have the gall to accuse Republicans of waging a "War on Women!"
