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.
