Laban Tall: Yes, it's "Female Foeticide UK" !
Killing babies is the most basic of human rights (except for the baby of course). Unless that is you kill more girl babies than boy babies. Welcome to the wonderful world of 'female foeticide', no longer a basic human right but instead 'an extreme manifestation of violence against women'. Your killing, to be ethical, should of course be race, gender, sexuality and disability neutral. Sorry, did I mention disability ? Forget about that one (and whisper it, but it's not race-neutral either).I hold extremely radical pro-abortion views but nevertheless I think Laban Tall raises some interesting issues in this piece. Read the whole thing, plus lots of links, at UK Commentators.
Anyway, what's new ? I posted all about this in March, when the great and the good were getting all in a tizz about what was happening in India. In India you can test for the sex of your unborn child, then knock it on the head if you don't like the result. "A woman's right to choose", remember ? "Every child a wanted child - every mother a willing mother".
