When we read news stories about sex selection abortions in China, which have caused a serious imbalance in the proportion of young men to young women, we are outraged. That same thing is happening here in the Asian communities, and we look the other way. Planned Parenthood was caught on audiotape accepting donations to abort black babies, and only pro-lifers protested. Everyone should be up in arms about this, pro-life and pro-choice.
Congressman Trent Franks laid the groundwork for bans on race and sex selection abortions with his PRENDA Bill. Priests for Life and the National Black Prolife Coalition were right there to cheer him on. Now, PRENDA is bearing good fruit in Arizona. A baby in the womb is a person, regardless of ethnicity or whether the baby is a boy or a girl. The Arizona lawmakers are making history, and thank God they have the courage to do the right thing!
