By Dave Andrusko I should have known better, of course, but on first glance I honestly misread the intent of the headline at Slate.com: “Why Sex-Selective Abortion Bans Are Terrible for Women—and Unconstitutional.” Just for a minute, I thought that Mark Joseph Stern was suggesting that killing unborn babies BECAUSE they are girls is “terrible …Continue reading "Sex-Selection abortions are terrible for women–unborn baby girls"
By Dave Andrusko For that tiny sliver of the population which believes there are never enough abortions and never a reason to stop any abortion, no matter how flimsy the grounds, it’s to be expected they could blow a fuse when states pass laws banning the practice of aborting children because they are females, aka …Continue reading "For the pro-abortionist, the inherent contradictions of sex-selective abortions"
By Dave Andrusko The headline in the New York Press is “Sex-Selective Abortion in New York.” Written by Rui Miao and Virginia Gunawan, the story alternates between minimizing the occurrence and more candid comments that the “old countries’” values endure. A subhead captures the it’s-there-but-getting-better theme: “While the practice appears to be diminishing, it remains …Continue reading "Sex-Selective abortion in New York: an open secret"
By Xavier Symons In these pages we have published a number of stories documenting the practice of sex-selective abortion in India and China; it is, however, not restricted to these countries. Rates of sex-selective abortion in Nepal are incredibly high, even though the practice is technically prohibited and hardly ever mentioned in Western media. One …Continue reading "The scary advance of gendercide in Nepal"
By Michael Cook Sex selection is on the agenda in Australia. The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) has called for public comment on new guidelines for IVF clinics. The most contentious change involves removing a ban on destroying embryos because they are not of the desired gender. In an article in The Conversation …Continue reading "Australia to ponder sex selection"
Editor’s note. This appeared on the webpage of the Parliamentary Network for Critical Issues (PNCI). Asia-based NGOs hosted a meeting in New Delhi to discuss the impact of efforts to reduce sex selective abortion on access to abortion. The discussion led by Asia Safe Abortion Partnership (ASAP) and Creating Resources for Empowerment in Action (CREA) …Continue reading "Pro-abortion NGOs: Right to Abortion Above Girls’ Right to Life"
By Dave Andrusko We’ve written dozens of articles about sex-selection abortions in India. While prenatal testing for gender is illegal, there have been very few prosecutions. And because sex-selection abortions are so very widespread, “India’s child sex ratio has deteriorated sharply over the past 20 years, dropping to 918 girls for every 1,000 boys born …Continue reading "Prime Minister launches “selfie” campaign against sex-selection abortion by promoting equality in India"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. I’ve argued many times in this space that the consciousness-raising capacity of sex-selection abortion is never, ever to be underestimated. Killing babies because they are the “wrong” sex (almost always because they are female) flies in the face of the just desire for female equality which pro-abortionists wrongly insist includes …Continue reading "Hoisted on Her Own Petard, and Mad as a Hornet about it"
By Nancy Flanders Most of us don’t pay much attention to the issue of sex-selective abortion – either because we think it doesn’t affects us, or because we don’t realize how widespread it is and how much it is affecting our world. But its impact reaches far and wide, even here in the United States. …Continue reading "Woman: I aborted 18 baby girls to give my husband the son he wanted"
Editor’s note. The following analysis was provided by the Parliamentary Network for Critical Issues. A new report by UNFPA’s office for Eastern Europe and Central Asia reveals that an estimated 171,000 girls are ‘missing’ in South Caucasus and parts of South-East Europe while there is a growing surplus of men. Preventing gender-biased sex selection in …Continue reading "New UN Report Warns of Dangers of Prenatal Sex Selection, massive loss of female babies"
By Dave Andrusko If you are a NRL News Today reader who has read many or most of the over 20 stories we’ve written on sex selection abortions in Great Britain, you will not be surprised that the latest developments may be ambivalent, at best. Last week The General Medical Council ended its investigation of …Continue reading "Abortionist willing to perform sex-selection abortion in Great Britain may lose license"
By Dave Andrusko In an incredible, albeit not unexpected, turn of events, Britain’s Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has potentially opened the door to sex-selection abortion on demand. In 2013, the CPS decided it “was not in the public interest” to prosecute two abortionists caught on tape agreeing to abort because the mother did not want …Continue reading "British CPS blocks prosecutions of abortionists caught on tape agreeing to sex-selection abortions"
