Has Canada endorsed sex-selective abortion?
Last week we reported that India has failed to reverse its skewed sex ratio – millions of baby girls are being aborted. The gendercide holocaust is not for lack of social messaging and feel-good feminist-friendly rhetoric. Politicians, bureaucrats, activists, educators are all singing from the same song sheet: do not abort girls. It hasn’t worked.
Most of the readers of BioEdge do not live in India and are not subject to the social pressures there. In countries like the US or the UK or Australia we might even feel a bit smug and self-righteous: we would never support sex-selective abortion, would we?
Don’t be so sure. Ultra-socially-progressive Canada just had a chance to reject sex-selection and blew it. Its Parliament overwhelmingly voted down a bill condemning sex-selection. Read about it below.
