Research shows female babies being aborted in Canada out of preference for boys

Published on

Ottawa, Ontario – Two papers published this week again drew attention to the ongoing practice of sex-selective abortion in Canada. With a focus on Indian communities, the researchers found a skewed ratio of boys to girls that cannot be explained by chance. While this study singles out a particular cultural group in Canada, sex-selective abortion is legal for anyone, at any point, as is all other abortion in Canada.

The researchers behind this study, reported on in the Globe and Mail and CTV News, call for the development of public-health policies to put an end to sex-selective abortion.

“A majority of Canadians, the Canadian Medical Association, the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia, and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario have all publicly condemned sex-selective abortion,” said Mike Schouten, director of WeNeedaLAW.ca.

“This would require a discussion Canada has so far been unwilling to have, as our government seems intent on clinging to an extreme pro-abortion philosophy which allows for human rights injustices against the pre-born to continue unhindered,” Schouten added. For a feminist Prime Minister [Justin Trudeau] to allow such an injustice against women to continue would be the ultimate irony.

“We call on Prime Minister Trudeau and the entire government to condemn sex-selective abortion and lead a discussion on restrictions that would end this practice,” Schouten concluded.
