Gendercide in Canada? The Economist
Posted by Matthew J. Tuininga
Gendercide in Canada? That is the Economist’s headline, not mine. For various reasons many liberals find a way to be much more concerned about discrimination in abortion than about killing the future persons on which our society depends. But it is still good to see a mainstream news magazine like the Economist bring this issue a little closer to home. As the Economist concludes:
In India and China sex-selective abortions are seen as crimes against humanity. Why should Canada view them any differently?
Recall that many people criticized the Arizona law banning discrimination in abortion as simply a cover for pro-life policies without any justification in fact? Shock! Apparently even here in North America people who would abort their own children are not immune to even worse practices like discrimination.
