The democrats have placed themselves in a difficult position in relation to gender based abortion.  The recent bill that would have outlawed abortion based strictly on the gender of the unborn child was defeated.

How can the democratic party stand up for the rights of women when they refuse to condem abortion based strictly on the gender of the unborn child?

Democrats are definitely in a difficult position on this issue. They are stuck between protecting a women's right to choose and protecting the value of female life.  It is a no win situation and they come out looking like hypocrites either way.  Republicans are using this issue to make them look bad.

Maybe these Democrats are Chinese.  I know they love murder, else they would not be murdering the children--like in ancient cultures where they dumped their babies into pits of fire.  I guess these Democrats who are PRO CHOICE (a modern term for being PRO CHEMOSH), think it is more humane to murder these little ones before they get a chance to have a life, grow up and vote PRO CHOICE!  It touches their sensabilities to let them be born and then throw them into a pit of fire to die.  That way they don't actually have to watch it happen.

This seems to be the fundamental flaw in the pro-choice argument.  If democrats value the lives of women before birth why should they not value all unborn life?

I do wonder if we as a nation will arrive at the  point where determining the gender of your unborn child before bith will be outlawed.

Personally,  I  believe that our governemnt should provide 100% free contrceptives to all women, and do regular public service announcements stressing the importance of only making babies when you are in stable relatonships and are self- supporting.

It should be shameful to make babies and expect the tax payers to pick up the tab for you.  It should  be each and every Amercican's duty to take responsibility for their own families and not burden other tax payers who are doing the right thing, and not expecting strangers to raise their offspring.

I understand your argument but I believe the solution is abstinence.  Some may say this is old fashioned or not possible. If we want people to take responsibility for their actions we should start at the root not try to put a band-aid over the problem.

Obviously there are exceptions but the act is generally a choice.
