Don't hide behind statistics.<quoted text>Another manufactured controversy
perpetuated by Anti-abortion activists!
I'm calling B/S on this one.
Statistics do not indicate that the US has a problem with sex-selective abortions, nor do they indicate an increasing gender discrepancy in the American birth rate. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control, the sex ratio — the number of baby boys born per 1,000 baby girls — has actually been decreasing slightly but steadily over the last 30 years. In 1983, 1,052 boys were born for every 1,000 girls born in the US; in 2009, 1,048 boys were born for every 1,000 girls. This is only indicative of a “growing problem” if by “growing problem" it's growing anti-abortion rights talking points...blah,blah,blah...
The issue is, is the sex of the child a legitimate condition to allow abortion?
It's a simple question.
