It's not enough that we allow late-term abortions. Now the Congress on May 31 didn't pass a bill that would have effectively outlawed "gender selection abortions." All because of political correctness, not because of what is right.
If you don't like the sex of your fetus, you can abort in the hope of getting the baby you want. There have been 40 million-plus abortions already since Roe v. Wade. That alone should shock the moral conscience of any civil society.
These are not puppies we're talking about, but human babies. We'll go out of our way to protect whales, harp seals, snail darters and spotted owls, but we won't lift a finger when it comes to our own all under the pretense of choice.
As we slip deeper into the abyss of moral decay and degradation, it is the gender-selection abortion proponents and our Congress leading the way to the complete moral collapse of human civilization. It is unconscionable to think that we, as a nation, have come this far to stoop this low.
