(RNS) Disclosures that women were being granted abortions based on the gender of their fetuses followed an undercover investigation by the Daily Telegraph. Now some want the doctors prosecuted and the laws changed.


  1. why in the world is this wrong given that abortion is allowed for the health of the mother and that is broadly interpreted as mental health. if a mother doesn’t want a child for any reason then mental health is invoked. you can’t talk about the morality of this kind of choice when you’ve allowed MENTAL HEALTH (distress, an “unwanted” child, etc) to be the basis for a woman’s choice to abort her baby. It is arbitrary to say you don’t like this couple’s reasons for getting an abortion. unless there is some type of law against this of which I am unaware, you can’t use the morality card.
