    When legislation came before Congress that would’ve banned abortions done because the baby was the “wrong” gender, pro-choicers fell all over themselves to say that this never happens. However, a number of abortionists and clinic workers have documented incidents where it has. Sallie Tisdale, a pro-choice clinic worker, said the following in her article in Harpers magazine: Always couples would abort a girl and keep a boy… An 18-year-old woman with three daughters brought her husband to the interview. He glared first at me, then at his wife, as he sank lower and lower in the chair, picking his teeth...
  • Australian Doc to lose license for refusing to perform sex-selection abortion

    Girl. Disposable. It’s a nightmarish scenario for Australian physician Dr. Mark Hobart, 55, who stands to lose his license for refusing to perform a sex-selection abortion and then for not referring the couple on to another physician. She told Dr. Hobart her husband wanted a son, not a daughter.It’s important to know that the woman went to another doctor, had the abortion a few days later, and lack of access to abortion is not the reason Hobart, a practicing Catholic with an impeccable 30-year career, is under siege by the Medical Board of Victoria. There is no need for an...

    During her speech at a Planned Parenthood of Central Oklahoma fundraiser on September 21, liberal feminist icon Gloria Steinem broached an uncomfortable topic for abortion proponents: the pandemic of missing girls. In 2011, that number was estimated to be 160 million. In her book, Unnatural selection: Choosing boys over girls, and the consequences of a world full of men, pro-abortion author Mara Hvistendahl, a correspondent for Science magazine, blamed ultrasound technology and abortion for the gendercide. This is simply common sense. I give Steinem points for raising the issue, particularly at a Planned Parenthood event, since it was only last...

    PHOENIX, June 6, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The third undercover video in a series on sex-selection abortions in America shows two more abortion clinics willing to perform the procedure in Arizona - where abortions targeting baby girls are a class 3 felony. The footage shows two National Abortion Federation (NAF) clinic members, Camelback Family Planning in Phoenix and the Tucson Women’s Center in Tucson, promising to perform a sex-selective abortion and coaching a woman to lie on official paperwork to conceal the reason for the procedure. “Don’t tell us that, because we don’t want to know,” says a counselor named...
  • Chinese Couple Gets Record Fine For Having a Second Child

    There are no words. A Chinese couple who managed to avoid authorities long enough to actually birth a second child were fined 1.3 million yuan ($204,000) after family-planning authorities deemed them 'rich in assets', LifeNews.com reports. So far this is the highest fine on record. Even worse is that the amount was compounded because the baby turned out to be a girl. Local family planning authorities worked with commerce, industry and township officials to investigate the couple’s finances. The parents were deemed “rich in assets” and hit with the highest fine on record. The shock of the amount is compounded by the sex of the...

    I turned on my television Thursday morning and heard a beating heart. It was the beautiful, vulnerable sound of an unborn baby's still-developing heart, from an ultrasound. "We don't know her eye color," the voiceover said. "Whether she'll be a redhead or brunette. We haven't seen her toes, fingers or nose. But through the science of genomics we can look forward and begin to care for her future." The ad was for a medical group in northern Virginia. "Join the future of health," the commercial urged. It was quite the paradox that later that same day, the House of...

    So we can ban super-sized drinks, but not this barbaric procedure? A handful of GOPers voted against this commonsense bill that would have protected vulnerable women from the hideous coercion of their husbands or partners who want offspring of one gender over another (usually boys over girls). China's vicious campaign against girls has arrived on American shores. Rep. Ron Paul an OB/GYN, voted with the Democrats, perhaps out of a federalism concern. The argument by Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee and other left-wing abortion fanatics is that this law would have led to women being "dragged out of doctor's offices" in an...

    As I type, the House of Representatives is debating the future of civil rights: a girl's right to life itself. Is it OK to choose to destroy a healthy unborn child simply because you or your husband prefer a boy? Should it be legal in this country? The Constitution gives to Congress the power to enforce the 14th Amendment's guarantees of equal protection by appropriate legislation. And this week, in a historic vote, the House is going to consider using that power to ban abortions based on gender. The bill is called the "Prenatal Anti-Discrimination Act," or PRENDA, because it...

The crematorium workers immediately sent the infant back to the hospital. Later that day, the hospital sent the infant back to the crematorium, dead. The hospital offered no explanation of the cause of death.

    In the cruel old China, baby girls were often left to die in the gutters. In the cruel modern China, they are aborted by the tens of millions, using all the latest technology. There is an ugly new word for this mass slaughter: gendercide. Thanks to a state policy which has limited many families to one child since 1979, combined with an ancient and ruthless prejudice in favour of sons, the world's new superpower is beginning the century of its supremacy with an alarming surplus of males. By the year 2020, there will be 30 million more men than women...

    Killed, aborted or neglected, at least 100m girls have disappeared—and the number is rising IMAGINE you are one half of a young couple expecting your first child in a fast-growing, poor country. You are part of the new middle class; your income is rising; you want a small family. But traditional mores hold sway around you, most important in the preference for sons over daughters. Perhaps hard physical labour is still needed for the family to make its living. Perhaps only sons may inherit land. Perhaps a daughter is deemed to join another family on marriage and you want someone...

    Midtown Manhattan this week has been turned into an extra-specially intense maze of flashing lights, motorcades and those dudes selling noxious candied peanuts -- the former heralding the advent of the U.N. General Assembly and the latter simply a New York Thing That Will Not Go Away, Ever. This year's festivities will probably best be remembered for Muammar Qaddafi's theatrical hijinks (the tent, the rant, the shredding) and for the triumphant return of the United States to the world forum -- but on the sidelines of these conventions, there's been some significant (and long overdue) attention paid to the role...

    China has announced a "Care for Girls" program with financial incentives for those who produce daughters. According to China's official news agency, 119 boys are now born for every 100 girls; the "natural" ratio is 103-107 for every 100. By 2020, it is estimated that China may contain 30 to 40 million restless bachelors. In the early '80s, the one-child policy was selectively imposed upon the Chinese people as a way to override the popular choice to have two or more children. Additional pregnancies were subject to coerced abortion. The one-child policy did not seek to disproportionately reduce the female...
