A bill in the United States House of Representatives has rejected by 246 votes to 168 the Republican-introduced Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act which would make it an offence for doctors to perform abortions requested for the sole reason that the foetus is of the gender undesired by its parents.
It seems that in the United States, as elsewhere, immigrants from certain Asian countries with preferences for male children are aborting girls, leading to unnatural gender imbalances within families. The demand for sex selective abortions derives, though not exclusively, largely from them.
In rejecting the bill, the House of Representatives is in effect condoning female infanticide.
But the feminist movement is also complicit in this condoning of the destruction of female foetuses, as this excellent article makes clear.
What a betrayal!
