I want to point out I am pro-choice. However, the over the top abortian must be provided at all times for any reason and the fate of the free world depends on it is absurd. Moreover, the notion that doctors should be allowed to practice with no guidelines is also a non starter.
Welcome to India NARAL must love this place. Female babies are aborted after birth creating lopsided sex ratios. There is a law that outlaws abortion based upon gender selection. The law is obviously not enforced creating lopsided sex ratios. China has a similar problem and many of these excess infants end up exported. I have zero problem with export as the vast preponderance of those adoptions are to childless couples. My problem is with the flurry of relative adoptions designed to get around immigration law, mostly nieces and nephews.
The fact that a procedure has been outlawed means nothing unless there is enforcement. The sex ratios speak for themselves that abortion for sex selection is still being done. Part of the reason this practice exists is that the cultural patterns of India mandate that soms are solely responsable for taking care of their parents in their retirement years. The other part is that doweries are still the norm
in India and a major financial burden.
My personal view is that abortion is a repugnant procedure. It should never be done outside the first trimester unless documented medical evidence states a reason otherwise. The notion that the fate of the entire free world depends on 24/7 abortion is ridiculous. The notion that any profession is above the law is also absurd. There is zero rationale that doctors are more moral than car mechanics or carpenters.
The imact of Indian and Chinese sex ratios being out of balance is unknown. However, I can envision a future where mail order husbands are imported. These husbands would have few of the problem with American divorce laws because they posses nothing.
