Welcome to Gaia! ::

But then turn around and say this is wrong?

It seems that the government is saying that 'we'll pay for your abortion for any reason you want...but the minute you decide you don't want a fetus carried to term because of gender, then it becomes a child and we won't allow that'.
Say what? If it's being done for convenience, then what gives them the right to step into the woman's uterus at this time?

Because aborting a child because of gender can cause huge disparities in the numbers of males and females (look at China @_@).

I'm sure there's a good difference between not wanting a child, period, and not wanting it out of sex discrimination.

It's s**t like that which led to a severe lack of women in China.

So? It's a double standard. "You can have an abortion for any reason you want...but the MINUTE we think it's gender based, we own your uterus.'

I suppose, but maintaining a certain level of balance between genders is important.

So it's fine and dandy for the government to step on toes.

Certain states in India also have severe problems with sex-selective abortion and female infanticide.

I think governments are right to try to bring an end to sex-based abortions, but denying women abortions doesn't seem to be the correct way. I'd simply have laws against telling parents the gender of their child in the first place.

Pretty much, yes. As somebody stated above, it's one thing to not want a child. It's another thing entirely to not want a child just because of its gender.

Bullshit. What business is it of the state why a woman wants to have an abortion? Bodily integrity unless it's for a reason we don't like? That's ******** idiotic.

I think they just don't want to admit that they like having a nanny state, and, as long as they aren't getting ******** over by the law, then it's all hunky dory.
