The New War on Abortion: Gendercide
The most pro-life House in history targets fetal gendercide
The Republican-controlled House has been making good on its pledge to promote and adopt pro-life policies. but now lawmakers need you to join the battle to outlaw “gendercide,” sex selection in abortions. Many pro-life measures have breezed through Congress, which is why so many have called this the most pro-life House in history, but a new battle against “gendercide” has just begun.
In 2012, the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA) was introduced by Arizona’s Rep. Trent Franks in the 112th Congress, but failed by just 30 votes. The bill would have made it a crime for doctors to perform abortions simply on the basis of gender, known as “gendercide.” Live Action had recently exposed “gendercide” at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas.

Rep. Franks who is known for standing against abortion throughout his political career sponsored PRENDA. The floor vote was 246-168 in favor, but the bill needed 30 more votes to pass. Twenty Democrats voted for the proposal; just seven Republicans opposed it.
The bill needed a two-thirds majority under a special rule to pass. If it had passed, PRENDA would have banned abortions based on gender. One hundred million unborn girls have reportedly been killed by ongoing worldwide “gendercide.”
China, Korea and India are often criticized for their gender-based abortions, but a new video from the pro-life group Live Action reveals abortion providers may often b condoning the practice in the U.S. as well.
White House officials said “the administration opposes gender discrimination in all forms,” but “that government should not intrude in medical decisions or private family matters.”
Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), has called President Obama the most pro-abortion president in history. “It is inconceivable to me, and I hope it is to you and every American, that our Nobel Prize-winning president can refuse to protect little girls from the violence of sex-selection abortions,” Smith said.
