Abortion Lobby Argues Against Bill that Protects Babies from Genetic Discrimination

Another Day, Another Euphemism: Abortion Lobby Argues Against Bill that Protects Babies from Genetic Discrimination

Editor’s note. The following was blogged in real time by Ohio Right to Life yesterday during testimony on the Down Syndrome Non-Discrimination Act.

On Wednesday, the Ohio House Health Committee heard opponent testimony against our Down Syndrome Non-Discrimination Act. NARAL and Planned Parenthood made it abundantly clear what they desire: abortion on demand.

In typical abortion lobby fashion, abortion activists completely disregarded the fact that there are actually two patients in a pregnancy, the mother and the child. Activists also completely ignored the blatant genetic discrimination that occurs against unborn children prenatally diagnosed with Down syndrome.

The hearing was a reminder of how far the abortion lobby will go to cloak their cause in euphemism, making it a battle about “care” and “access” rather than what it is: the life or death of an unborn human being. One activist actually used the phrase “life-saving abortion care.”

Never has there been a more ironic phrase, because abortion isn’t healthcare, and it always ends a human life.
