    The issue of sex-selective abortion is a huge and complex problem in parts of India. Its led to gender imbalances in some Indian states that have reached emergency proportions, --snip-- Under Indian law, its strictly illegal for a doctor to reveal the sex of a fetus by any words, by any sign, by any way, by any means by emailing or anything, says Varsha Deshpande, a lawyer and activist whos spent more than 20 years fighting against sex selection in her home state, Maharashtra. We see it as genocide. What angers her most is lax enforcement of the countrys...

    In a stunningly evil and disgusting article, a feminist only willing to identify herself as Lana has described her decision to abort her child, based solely on the fact that he was a boy. Lana begins her article by explaining that the patriarchy has been well entrenched since the dawn of time, and continues by writing about an argument she had with a man on an airplane, while she was pregnant, to summarize what she deemed extreme patriarchy. The description of the argument is straight forward: Lana was flying to San Francisco to participate in an Occupy Wall Street rally....

    (LiveActionNews) — A common narrative in our society is that, by opposing abortion and infanticide, Christians are conducting a “war on women.” However, in a fascinating study entitled “The Rise of Christianity,” published by Princeton University Press, sociologist Rodney Stark argues that the phenomenal growth of “the obscure, marginal Jesus movement” was due in large part to women. Stark argues that early Christianity was “especially attractive to women” because “within the Christian subculture women enjoyed far higher status than did women in the Greco-Roman world at large.”Furthermore, Stark argues that the Christian opposition to abortion and infanticide was one of...

    ORIGINAL TITLE IN CHINESE: 关注性别失衡:艺术家创作女兵马俑(双语) When Emperor Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China, anticipated his death more than 2,000 years ago, he wanted an army of warriors to guard his mausoleum forever and protect him in the afterlife。   So he ordered the creation of some 8,000 terra-cotta soldiers, along with hundreds of terra-cotta horses and chariots, to be buried with him in his tomb. Historians speculate the soldiers were modeled after eight individuals. When the statues were discovered by workers digging a well in Xi'an, Shaanxi Province, in 1974, the world was stunned by the spectacular funerary art...

    Supervisor David Chiu wants San Francisco to become the first American city to oppose any ban on sex-selective abortions. It apparently has not occurred to him why no other city has chosen to do so. Journalist Mara Hvistendahl, author of "Unnatural Selection: Choosing Boys Over Girls, and the Consequences of a World Full of Men," estimates that sex-selective abortions have "claimed over 160 million potential women and girls -- in Asia alone." Thus, it is rather disturbing to watch one of the most liberal politicians in liberal San Francisco grandstand in defense of a practice that devalues -- destroys, actually...

    San Francisco, California is closer to becoming the most pro-abortion city in the nation. That’s because the city is about to go on record opposing a ban on sex-selection abortions. Why would banning abortions done simply because the unborn baby is a girl be a problem? City officials opposing the ban make the claim that somehow it is racist.From the San Francisco Examiner story: San Francisco would become the first jurisdiction in the country to go on record opposing sex-selective abortion bans if a resolution stating they perpetuate racial stereotypes, being introduced by Supervisor David Chiu today, is adopted by...

    Sex-selection abortion in Californiawhich has evolved into a cottage tourism industry for women wishing to hand-pick their babys genderwill remain a protected practice after the Assembly Health Committee snubbed a proposal on May 6 to end the barbaric trend. As expected, the committee voted along party lines, 13-6, squelching Assembly Bill (AB) 2336 (Grove R-Bakersfield). In introducing her Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act at the hearing, Assemblywoman Shannon Grove offered statistics showing that entire population segments are shifting toward male majorities as experts estimate that 160 million girls have been killed either from through sex-selection abortion or infanticide at birth by parents...

    The Moral Maze on Radio 4 on Saturday night was unsatisfactory as always. This is because morality is treated as merely subjective, without regard to objective laws, and listeners who have not already sorted out what they believe, are left in the same maze as before. On the regular panel Claire Fox is generally bleakly pragmatic and Melanie Phillips generally angry and hectoring. It is a very British programme: serious moral concerns are aired, more or less politely, and then left when they began up in the air.This weeks subject was on the rights and wrongs of gender-specific abortions...

    When you talk about being pro-choice, sex selective abortion is often slung at you as the triumphant gotcha. "You love women so much you want them to be in charge of what grows inside their bodies, but what about the women who are aborted, have a go at answering that? ZING!" The answer is actually remarkably simple, and it's this: it doesn't matter whether what's growing inside you is liable to end up as a man or a woman. What matters is whether the person it's growing inside the person who is going to have to deliver the resulting...

    The House on Thursday rejected a Republican bill that would impose fines and prison terms on doctors who perform abortions for the sole purpose of controlling the gender of the child, a practice known as sex-selective abortion. The Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA), H.R. 3541, was defeated in a 246-168 vote. While that's a clear majority of the House, Republicans called up the bill under a suspension of House rules, which limits debate and requires a two-thirds majority vote to pass. In this case, it would have required more support from Democrats. Twenty Democrats voted for the bill, while seven Republicans...

    (CNSNews.com) The White House is opposed to a bill that was proposed in the House that would ban sex-selection abortions. In defending President Obama's opposition to the bill, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said it would force abortionists into the position of trying to determine the "motivations" behind a "very personal" decision. During the White House press briefing Wednesday, Fox News reporter Ed Henry asked, since the president has been outspoken about being against gender-based discrimination, how can you allow gender-based abortion? White House Press Secretary Jay Carney responded that President Obama is against discrimination in all forms,...

Tapper raised the question at Wednesdays White House press briefing, but did not receive a respond to his question about Obamas position. I will have to take that as well.

    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...

PRENDA will be considered under suspension of the rules, meaning no amendments can be added. The bill must be voted on as is, straight up or down, and a two-thirds majority will be needed to pass it.

    The blind Chinese human-rights activist Chen Guangcheng, who escaped from house arrest on April 22 and may be under the protection of the U.S. Embassy, was initially detained for exposing the massive abuse of Chinese women under Chinas one-child policy. His documentation of forced sterilizations and abortions landed him in jail for four years, followed by a year and a half of house arrest. His daring escape has now triggered renewed attacks on organizations engaged in helping Chinese women keep and feed their infants. Since April 28, the Family Planning Commission of Susong County in Chinas Anhui province has been...
