Pro-choice activists have hard time condemning sex selection abortions
“After decades of fighting for a woman’s right to choose the outcome of her own pregnancy, it is difficult to turn around and point out that women are abusing that right…”
From one pro-choice activist:
“We have had a challenge making sure that when we communicate we are able to preserve women’s right to abortion but at the same time say that sex selection on the basis of the gender of the future child is incorrect because it amounts to discrimination. How do you hold onto this discrimination tag and at the same time talk about safe abortion and access to it? It’s been a huge challenge for us – we are walking a tightrope.”
