Question by American citizen and taxpayer : Does this law limit “a woman’s right to choose?”? It is currently illegal in India to use ultrasound to determine the sex of an unborn child. The concern is that families are more likely to abort female fetuses than male fetuses.
But doesn’t that law “interfere with the decisions of a woman and her doctor?” Why is “the state” getting involved? Are there “Bible thumpers” there too?
Actually, if sex-selection abortion is restricted in India, China and other eastern countries, the alternative does not appear to be the “back-alley abortion,” but infanticide, the swift killing of female newborns. Is this less objectionable than an illegal abortion, since the mother is not at risk, or is it worse, because the “viable fetus” is now outside the mother’s body?
Don’t assume you know my views. Please give me yours. Thanks. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sex-selective_abortion_and_infanticide
