Race-Based Abortion Bill Gets Initial OK in Arizona House

Categories: News

In Arizona, Leprechaun attacks are about as significant a problem as race-based abortions.
The Arizona Legislature is one step closer to tackling a serious problem that doesn't actually exist.

Today, the House reportedly gave initial approval to a bill that would require women getting an abortion to sign a document promising they aren't aborting the pregnancy based on sex, and another promising they aren't aborting their pregnancy based on race. Under the proposed law, anyone caught doing so could be slapped with a class-three felony.

The bill is the product of Representative Steve Montenegro, who, as we've pointed out in prior posts, apparently thinks he represents a district in China -- where aborting babies based on sex or race might actually be a problem.

Nobody wants to see a baby aborted for either of those reasons -- if those sort of things were actually happening in Arizona, which they're not.

"There is no indication that this is even an issue," Planned Parenthood Arizona spokeswoman Cynde Cerf told New Times earlier this month.

Rather, this is just a symbolic waste of time (and taxpayer money) Cerf feels the bill "is just to further damage the reputations of women who get an abortion."

"This bill is trying to create the impression that women and families have abortions based on race or sex," she continues.

A hearing for a different abortion bill that was supposed to be heard today, which would require abortion doctors to offer patients the opportunity to look at ultrasound images of the fetus, and adds stiffer regulations to abortion-by-pill procedures, has been postponed.

WTF? Why not just say we'll arrest u while ur still on the table getting the procedure. There is no way they can enforce this unless they examine the products of conception, as the parent u have the right to take them for "burial" as reglion dictates, and to deny examination w/o a court order! Know your rights people, and fight for them. If you don't they will be taken away.

It is wrong to trivialize the human rights abuse of girl-children targeted because of their gender or to deny its existence beacuse it remains hidden, especially in certain immigrant groups in the US.

The act of "prenatal sex-selection", resulting in selective abortion on the grounds of sex, is included in the official definition of violence agreed at the Fourth UN Conference on Women at Beijing (1995): Governments, including the US at Beijing promised to enact and enforce legislation protecting girls from all forms of violence, including "prenatal sex selection". Hilsry Clinton was there when this promise was made.

There is just one clear reason for this apostasy of what was agreed in the Beijing Platform—it is the fear, the growing realization that any condemnation of any abortion whatsoever will expose the paucity of logic and morality in their extreme ideological commitment to abortion as a woman's 'choice', as an absolute right that may not be restricted for any reason or in any way. This extreme ideological position is fundamentally incompatible with the human rights obligations towards children at risk of abortion.

According to Kirsten Moore, president of the pro-choice Reproductive Health Technologies Project, when members of her staff recently discussed whether to recommend that any prenatal tests be banned, they found it impossible to draw a line — even at sex selection, which almost all found morally repugnant:

"We all had our own zones of discomfort but still couldn’t quite bring ourselves to say, 'Here's the line, firm and clear' because that is the core of the pro-choice philosophy…You can never make that decision for someone else." Proponents of this extreme kind of pro-choice ideology are on a collision course with fundamental human rights principles protecting the rights of the girl-child at risk of abortion.

The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child has condemned selective abortion as discrimination against children and as a serious violation of their rights, affecting their survival. The Committee denounces not only selective abortion of girl children on the grounds of sex discrimination, but also goes on in the same paragraph to condemn "multiple discrimination (e.g., related to ethnic origin, social and cultural status, gender and/or disabilities)".

In His wisdom, God created Arizona so that people living in other states would feel better about themselves.

Wow. So it isn't just Mexicans(or "Hispanics") they hate. This just goes to show you how the local GOPsuckers hate women too.

Better yet, just hate them back.

The Arizona Taliban continue in their efforts to legislate their version of morality.

I'd like to see an Amendment to the US Constitution passed that says any legislator who passes unconstitutional legislation more than twice will be stripped of their citizenship and set adrift on a raft in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

That should slow down the Arizona Taliban and their hatred of the US Constitution.

I'll tell you what... every damned time I knock up some floozy, and they tell me they're going to have a Black girl, I'm on the phone to the abortion clinic faster than you can say "ethnic ejaculation".WHITE MEN, goddamn it, that's just what this hell-hole of a state needs more of.Pearce, Arpaio, Hendershott, Hayworth... that's what Arizona is about.

Indian Ocean? Nah, just set them adrift off the coast of Somalia in a nice yacht, sure, a raft would work, but the yacht would attract pirates, and after a few politicians, the pirates would probably stop altogether, killing two birds with one stone, so to speak.

Why pollute the Indian Ocean? Just set them adrift in the Mexican Desert and don't give them oars. The dumbfucks won't know what the hell to do.
