The bill to ban abortion for the purpose of sex-selection was defeated in the House of Representatives. Because of a procedural move by Republicans (which tells me they weren’t serious about trying to pass it) the bill had to get 2/3 of the votes.
So guess how Democrats are spinning this? Gender-selection abortions are common in Asia, especially in China and India, where there is a strong cultural preference for boys over girls. This is also happening with at least some Asian-Americans. So Democrats are saying that the Republicans who favored the bill are racist against Asian-Americans! Really!Republican’s abortion bill risks alienating Asian Americans – The Washington Post.
