Sex-Selection Abortion

Last week, legislation that would’ve banned sex-selection abortion failed to pass in the House of Representatives. Whether the bill itself was well-constructed is another matter. Of course, I contend that all human life is sacred and that abortion is nothing less than the willful murder of a baby. Now the American people are wrestling with sex-selection abortion, which is already widely practiced in China and India. Isn’t sex-selection abortion (i.e., abortion based on the gender of a child) the most extreme form of gender discrimination imaginable? And since sex-selection abortion historically favors killing baby girls, how is this practice not the most heinous crime against women? What do you think?

Because China has a one child law, many places in China have a 90% female abortion rate. Where are the feminist/activist? Silent, when they finally have something worth fighting for.

I am also opposed to abortion in any form, but find it ironic that what is considered “a woman’s right to choose” has become a vehicle for oppression of the female gender of the vilest form.
