    I selected no and I’m republican. I’m pro-choice but something about this seems wrong to me. I don’t even know if I have a good reason as to why but it just feels wrong to me :/

    ETA: this just seems silly… Do they even ask you the reason you want an abortion when you go to get one?

    I personally believe the less say the government has in my reprodutive health the better. Not that that is the choice I would make, but I really don’t believe that is anybody’s business beside me, my husband, and my doctor.

    Here’s the deal. That article is extremely biased.

    Here’s a quote from this NPR article about it: Opponents said it would subject doctors to criminal charges and discriminate against Asian-American women.

    Should it be legal? Yes. I don’t think women should need to tell their reasons for ending a pregnancy.

    Would I do it? Fuck, no.

    Would I judge the people who did? Yeah, probably.

    @MrsPom:  No. Most are not allowed to ask for reasons or discriminate because of a reason. This is just conservative bull and political play.

    @Roe:  Why should I tell you, a doctor, why I want an abortion… are you my conscious? Are you my partner? If you are my doctor, you are my doctor. And I am allowed to pay for my services and have them done without questioning.

    I’m pro-choice, although I personally would never get an abortion (except for extreme reasons), and I’m conservative (Canadian). I think it’s kind of terrible that someone would abort their baby just because it was a boy when they wanted a girl, but I still wouldn’t make it illegal.

    No – I don’t think it should be legal.

    But really, what can they do about it?  Even of they banned it, anyone getting a sex-selection abortion could just lie about their reason.

    This poll is easy to answer, but a law about it is not so easy. How would you possibly prove any of this? Women & Doctors could be prosecuted for perceived motivations. I mean – if the only time the law ever came into play is when a woman signs a paper stating “I want an abortion soley because it’s a girl” then that’s ok. But I doubt that’s how it would be used. I’m glad they shot it down.

     

    Reason #1 from your article doesn’t even use your word “solely” which is pretty important.

     (1) perform an abortion, at any time in pregnancy, “knowing that such abortion is sought based on the sex or gender of the child”;

    @ohmybears48:  Yeah…thats exactly what I was saying, that I don’t think women should need to tell their reasoning. At all.

    Did you misread my post?

    I didn’t know they asked ” why” someone wanted an abortion? or how you would ever regulate something like that?
