When you're on the wrong side of Planned Parenthood, you're on the right side of history.

The left's disingenuous and intellectually lazy "war on women" talking points have blown up in its face. Most polls show Mitt Romney fast gaining on President Obama with female voters. Some polls even show him pulling ahead.

Still, it's the multi-billion dollar abortion industry that may just give Romney the boost he needs to take a permanent lead. Just days after pro-life investigative group Live Action released devastating evidence that Planned Parenthood systemically engages in the grisly practice of sex-selection abortion — a charge to which it now admits — the cash-flush abortion Goliath has done Obama an ironic disservice by endorsing his re-election bid. The group has additionally launched a $1.4 million advertising campaign to smear Mitt Romney.

Let's put aside for a moment the scandalous disclosure that while Planned Parenthood receives over 350 million per annum in your taxpayer dollars, it nonetheless spends millions engaging in partisan politicking for the DNC. Troubling as that may be, utterly horrific is the revelation that this extremist organization — which absurdly presumes to defend "women's rights" — has been caught red-handed torturing little girls to death in mamma's womb, simply because mamma wanted a boy.

This discovery — eerily reminiscent of Communist China's forced one-child sex-selection policy — has shocked the conscience of an entire nation. So disturbing are the facts that on Thursday the U.S. House of Representatives voted on the Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act (PRENDA), H.R. 354, introduced by Republicans in Congress. Unbelievably, because the bill required a two-thirds majority for passage, Democrats were able to narrowly abort the measure by a vote of 246-168.

The legislation, which would have outlawed sex-selection abortions altogether, was also opposed by President Obama. This comes as little surprise when you consider that, while a state senator, Obama repeatedly fought Illinois' Born Alive Infant Protection Act. This law simply required that when a baby survives a botched abortion — when she is "born alive" — further attempts to kill her must immediately cease, and steps must be taken to save her life.

But according to our president — leader of the "civilized" world — a law preventing the abortionist from finishing her off is "really designed simply to burden the original decision of the woman and the physician to induce labor and perform an abortion."

This, coupled with Democratic support for sex-selection abortion (now on record), represents the true "war on women." This is misogyny at its deadly worst. Take note, America: Obama and Democrats have officially endorsed the Mengelian practice of explicitly targeting little girls — over boys — for live dismemberment.

Still, there is good news here. This entire saga has placed in the national spotlight the irreconcilable incongruities central to our nation's ongoing policy of legalized abortion on demand.

Consider, for instance, that under current federal and state law, if an off-duty abortionist — if any man, for that matter — physically assaults a woman and her unborn daughter dies, that man has committed murder. Yet if mom walks into Planned Parenthood and authorizes that same man to rip her baby girl limb-from-limb, it's her "choice." First case: murder. Second case: "choice." Both cases: dead baby girl.

Furthermore, consider that — as established by a 2006 Zogby International poll of over 30,000 Americans in 48 states — 86 percent support a law banning sex-selection abortion. Doesn't it stand to reason, then, that since the vast majority recognize the objectively reprehensible nature of sex-selection abortion, they, too, might recognize that it's equally reprehensible for mom to have baby killed for no reason at all? This is what current law allows, without restriction, through the ninth month.

Indeed, incongruities abound. Still, it is the indefensible nature of empty "pro-choice" rhetoric that, I believe, will ultimately end legalized abortion in America. Truth, even when buried for decades, eventually has a way of rising to the surface.

It's inevitable. Roe v. Wade will, in time, be tossed, alongside the slavery-justifying Dred Scott decision, exactly where both shameful scars on Lady Liberty belong: in the trash heap of historical inhumanity.

Just as those who excused slavery are reviled by history, so, too, will be those who called themselves "pro-choice."
