Sex-selective abortions in Canada: Pro-choicers make uterus a “male-only safe space”

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator

A study of six million births published in April in the Canadian Medical Journal shows a preference for boys among Indian-born parents. This gender preference has contributed to more than 4,400 missing female births.

This greater presence of boys among Indian-born mothers may be linked to abortions during the second trimester after parents have learned the sex of their babies.

This prompted Ontario Liberal Minister of Health, Dr. Eric Hoskins, to speak out.

“No health-care provider, including physicians, should, in any circumstances, be providing or supporting individuals or families that are attempting to determine the sex of their child in order to secure a sex-selective abortion,” ...

“This is an issue of gender equality and equity and (the behaviour) has no place in Canada, let alone in Ontario.”

I totally agree.

But how do the “safe, legal and on-demand” pro-abortion feminists square this circle? They can't have it both ways though they'll certainly try.

Feminists will tell you a fetus isn’t a baby and it’s always the mom’s choice to carry the baby to term, or not and for any reason. Do they still support the mom’s choice to not have that baby for actual sexist reasons?

This puts pro-choicers in a bit of an ideological pretzel.

Isn’t it ironic that the very people who advocate for women’s only safe spaces are making it easy for the uterus to be a male-only space?

There is no answer Drew…
So I guess the answer would be push the reset button and start all over again..
To terminate a life for the sake of convenience is the worst of all sins..!!
There is no moral code in society anymore there’s only the obvious effects from long-term brainwashing for those that were susceptible to it.

Somehow , I doubt , that you White people will force your views on the pigmented. You are only ‘Show and Flash’..
Just wondering why you would group and incorporate “you white people” as if you were speaking for all white people.. or any white people for that matter… and as a white person I think I can say that you don’t speak clearly for any white person on this planet because you don’t know what it is to be a white person should don’t assume anything about them… I’m sure you like everybody else what did you call it “pigmente’d skin” has an opinion.

David White it is also quite fun making them think and then seeing them hide.

Anonymous… below is a re-post of my comments earlier. I would venture to say that you would agree with the person in my post. There is something seriously wrong with you if so! A person just two days ago likened evacuating a baby in the third trimester to evacuating their bowels. If it is in your body and you want it out, it is completely ok to get it out. Really does say a lot about the moral compass of the millennials.

ANONYMOUS: Then we should all have the right to kill with impunity, no consequences. You obviously support abortion as a means of birth control. Sick

Having a right to an abortion is a good thing. I should be able to get an abortion for any reason I want.

If a woman wants to abort her disabled fetus, then does that make her anti disabled? I would think not.
commented 2016-08-19 02:47:09 -0400
This whole issue is not about the woman not wanting to have a baby,it is about her not wanting to have a certain kind of baby.

Question for progressives-“Can trans men have a say in this issue?”
If you answer no ,and you say they do not posses the physical uterus and other parts of a woman, then why are they considered women and allowed to use the ladies washrooms?

Shebel Raj why should others pay for someone elses choice?

This is not sexist for some reason. And it is funny that progressives who push eugenics call others Hitler.

My favourite abortion comment goes like this………

Male doctor comes home from work.

Wife greets him at the door with a hug and says – “How’d your day go Hon?”

Doc responds – “Had a great day thanks – I killed 6 female babies today – how about you?”

To be fair and equitable it can also go like this……

Female doctor comes home from work.

Husband greets her at the door with a hug and says – “How’d your day go Hon?”

Doc responds – “Had a great day thanks – I killed 6 female babies today – how about you?”

We continue to spiral downwards.

How can a man or a woman marry someone who freely and willing kills life – children – before they are born?

I admit to not being so hard over when it comes to rape and incest – but that is me – still, the chid is not to blame – and yet we often kill it.

What the hell have we become?

If you didn’t want to abort in the first trimester, then you should not be allowed to abort in the second, based on the sex of the fetus. That is am obviously sexist act. Disgusting people who do this sort of thing in our advanced society. It’s like back woods people using modern technology without the moral and cultural background.

I am ‘pro-choice’——- and I am White skinned and I am Christian . My pro-choice goes no further than having some pious ,piece of shit , Liberal that thinks they have the God given right to dictate that my child should have a baby—- regardless of how or by what it was conceived. No ifs,ands or buts. You already new that. NOW—— You are going to toss the non-White skinned and the non- Christians into the mix-. Right? But you will hold ME to my Cultural and religious values — We already know what the South Asians do . You will ignore this fact. Go ahead—- Make your Point.

Gee, and Canadians like to claim we don’t do gender abortions here in Canukistan. Wake the hell up!!!

I think we are sliding down the slippery slope now, with literally no caveat. It used to be basically between a woman and her doctor, that is giving the woman a lot of autonomy. Restricting late term and sex selective abortion does not mean a woman cannot terminate a pregnancy. It just means they can’t wait to do it. It is a reasonable requirement and does not restrict a woman’s choice.
commented 2016-08-18 14:28:13 -0400
It will be very interesting to see how this dilemma unfolds. To remove the mother’s exclusive right to put value on her unborn child should logically open the door to a very slippery slope.

Don’t know why this should surprise anyone – sex discrimination in pre birth infanticide is the natural extension of the racial bigotry which spawned planned parenthood in the first place – today 50% of the black US population is killed before they are born.

In abortion’s founder’s own words: Regarding blacks and immigrants
“they are…human weeds,’ ‘reckless breeders,’ ’spawning… human beings who never should have been born.”

And the class/race/gender bigotry of abortion forges on today.

In a civil society, a free for all on social issues is not very civil.
We didn’t do sex selective abortions here until it was imported and all rules were stripped to make for no abortion restrictions.
In 1969 the government allowed abortion under certain circumstances. ‘Abortions may be performed in a hospital if a committee of doctors (3) decides that continuing the pregnancy may endanger the mother’s life or health.’ This was quite a broad definition and included mental health, rape, a woman’s circumstance. It was pretty much left up to a doctor’s discretion. I had no problem with that, it seemed to accommodate the needs of the woman while still having some restrictions to abortion.
Certain restrictions meant, no late term abortions unless absolutely medically necessary to save the life of the mother. It was considered dangerous for women to have them. Gender selection was considered an unacceptable reason for abortion, although it rarely came up in Canada. It became more frequently requested from women who immigrated to Canada from India, China, Korea, Vietnam and Philippines.
Lester Pearson was in when it first started, but ironically it was Pierre Trudeau in power in 69 when the initial law was implemented, leaving the decision between a woman and her doctor, but with some restrictions.
In 1988 the 1969 abortion law was struck down, and now you have a free for all.

Wouldn’t it be a kick in the nuts to dad if they aborted any female fetuses so they could have a son and then the kid grows up to be a homo? Hahahahahahahahahaha!!

Mr. Trudeau: How can you, as a feminist, promote abortion on demand when facts show that many abortions are provided in order to reduce the population percentage of females? How can you be against gender selective abortion, yet support the woman’s right to choose the gender of their fetus?
