big trouble in little China
The Chinese are at it again, trampling on personal autonomy and individual rights, in order to benefit the State. Someone notify the United Nations. Repeal this unjust law - NOW!
Shortage of girls forces China to criminalise selective abortion
The Chinese government is to make the selective abortion of female foetuses a criminal offence and will ban parents from obtaining ultrasound scans to discover their unborn baby's sex, in an attempt to tackle an unwanted side-effect of its "one-child" policy.
The Telegraph reports that Chinese officials are investigating ways to "prevent women aborting baby girls".
Surely no women abort "babies" or "girls" or "persons" - they only abort foetuses, don't they?
Could someone explain then the ninety degrees turnaround that has transformed these foetuses into babies/persons? And how soon will pro-abortionists in the West be launching a campaign objecting to China's violation of a "woman's right to choose"...
