Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act

According to the Alliance Defense Fund, “Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., reintroduced the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act today, which would ban sex- and race-selective abortions."

Most Democrats couldn't possibly support this bill, of course, because to support the bill is to acknowledge that the imagined "right to privacy" has limitations and should be restricted.

On the other hand, for Democrats to oppose the bill is to say, in effect, "yes, we believe that if a woman's baby is of an unwanted race or sex, that woman has a right to abort him/her. This would be the ultimate in racism, sexism and discrimination!

I'm not sure how effective this legislation would be. After all, no one is going to go to the abortion clinic saying, "I want to abort my baby because it is a girl" or "I want to abort my baby because it is black/white/Asian/Hispanic."

Yet, it may be informative, not to mention entertaining, just to watch the Left's reaction.
