President Barack Obama sees a villain underneath every corporate rock except the one beneath which the abortion industry hides. It is inconceivable to Obama that abortion doctors might have a profit motive that tempts nefarious activity. In Obama’s mind, the abortion industry is the only corporate entity that should be completely unregulated.

The White House’s May 30 statement in opposition to a ban against sex selective abortions not only misrepresented the bill, which specifically exempts an abortionist from affirmatively determining a mother’s motive for abortion, it gave abortionists carte blanche:

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.

This verbiage also sounded familiar. It is. In 2002, when then Illinois State Senator Barack Obama was arguing against a bill that would have forced abortionists to call an independent second physician to assess abortion survivors for viability, he said:

[O]ne of the things that we were concerned about, or at least I expressed some concern about, was what impact this would have with respect to the relationship between the doctor and the patient and what liabilities the doctor might have in this situation…

[A]n additional doctor who then has to be called in an emergency situation to come in and make thee assessments is really designed simply to burden the original decision of the woman and the physician to induce labor and perform an abortion….

Because if these are children who are being born alive, I, at least, have confidence that a doctor who is in that room is going to make sure that they’re looked after.

If Barack Obama thinks assessing live aborted babies for viability interferes with the doctor-patient relationship, it should come as no surprise that he would not want to interfere with sex-selective abortions, or any abortion.

Big Abortion is the one big business in which Obama has complete trust.  Pretty scary.
