It's total bullshit.
Slightly less short version:
Idiotic anti-choice fabulists like Dana Loesch are so repulsed by the thought of abortion and so angry that there's very little they can do (legally and without fire-bombing abortion clinics) to enact big government nanny-state laws (oh, the irony) banning the procedure altogether, that they've instead decided to coin terms -- in this case, gendercide -- that sound incredibly scary but which have no real basis in reality so that they can whip up a frenzy amongst the easily-whipped up far right in the hopes of pushing through a bill which will be so vague in what it criminalizes that doctors will be too scared to provide any abortion services let alone abortions of the mythical sex-selective variant.
…gaaaaaaaasp. Whew. Just a second. Okay.
And, of course, they'll back up the need to do this based not on evidence of any actual epidemic of women rushing out to abort months-old fetuses based solely on gender, but because one dumb-fuck right-wing nut job managed to find one dumb low-level employee at Planned Parenthood who (while being secretly taped) bought into a false story about someone wanting to do just that and who subsequently indicated that it's that person's choice. "Cut. That's a wrap. Edit in some ominous music and cut anything we don't want to use."
So, once again, we have people who have proven that if someone is willing to lie or break the law in order to prove a point, it might appear as though something is actually a problem…even if it isn't.
This sort of entrapment journalism is a stain on the profession and should -- in certain circumstances -- be criminal. Given enough patience and enough editing, you can find anyone to support anything. "Nevermind the misses, we'll just edit in the one hit and if the hit isn't quite satisfactory enough, well, we can edit for that, too."
And, of course, the assholes most likely to promote this myth (in order to spread FUD about abortion practices amongst women) and with the most power to actually do something about it -- the money men, the establishment dickwads -- are the same fucking assholes who are bending over backward to express their outrage about sensible sex education and birth control promotion and use.
Because, you know, there's no woman quite as appealing to these people as a barefoot and pregnant woman.
Just to be clear:
- Abortion = bad.
- Birth control and sex education, the best way to combat abortions = bad.
Guess who I'm voting for this November?
