President Obama Opposes Bill That Would Ban Sex Selective Abortion

It’s because it’s difficult to determine an abortion seeker’s motive so they’d need to be interviewed by a qualified professional before they could have the abortion. Given the cuts in government services there would probably be a substantial wait time to schedule an appointment – probably about, say, nine months or so. Hey, wait a second!

President Obama opposes a bill the House will vote on today that would ban sex selective abortions. From ABC News' Jake Tapper:

White House deputy press secretary Jamie Smith says in a statement: “The Administration opposes gender discrimination in all forms, but the end result of this legislation would be to subject doctors to criminal prosecution if they fail to determine the motivations behind a very personal and private decision.   The government should not intrude in medical decisions or private family matters in this way.”

Why would Obama oppose legislation that doesn't ban...
