Well, if you say so

Forcing pregnant women who do not want a child of one sex or the other to give birth could harm both the baby and the mother’s mental health, a leading doctors’ union member has said.

Prof Wendy Savage, a voting member of the British Medical Association Council, also said women should have the right to terminate a pregnancy at any stage.

But it does seem rather one sided, no?

  1. “She told the newspaper: “It is a woman’s right to decide. It’s her body. She is the one taking the risks.

    “The foetus is a potential human life at that stage (in the womb); it is not an actual human life … I think you’ve got to concentrate on the (rights of the) woman.””

    I think it’s a lot more human than Prof Savage…

  2. “Prof Savage said sex-selective abortions were a “myth””

    Right. So tour intervention is in support of sethkng you claim is a myth. We could stop right there couldn’t we.

  3. But let’s not stop there. Let’s go to India and China and a number of other places in the world. Places where ‘women’s rights’ campaigners like the good prof.have been telling us for years there has been gender-specific infanticide. And where ‘women’s rights’ campaigners have been telling g us for years this has been replaces by sex-selective abortions

    And those same.women’s rights campaigners went quiet about 18 months ago when faced with this indisputable fact: sex-selective abortion means killing unborn girls. Well, they’ve made up their minds about that one: the right to an abortion trumps a woman’s right to life. Only that doesn’t read too great does it. So we’ll just pretend sex-selective abortion is a myth. And we’ll shout loudly until the lie becomes the truth.

    Sorry. Bastards.

  4. The irony is that feminists, in calling for sex-selective abortions, will ensure that there are fewer women around in the future, as our, uh, vibrant and diverse new cousins bring over their vibrant and diverse practises of only wanting male children.

  5. But how will a woman, sorry, *potential* woman, terminated in a sex-selection abortion ever get to have the joy of having an abortion herself?

  6. “forcing” – well that’s going to help solve the problem, isn’t it? Demonising one side, infantile sing the other, all hail the priest class.

    If the NHS is supposed to be an amoral service provider, they can’t hide the sex of the child. And in that case, can we dump all the lifestyle nannying, please.

    If the NHS is to set any moral standard (which is inevitable, since its staff must perform legal duties) you’re not going to get ‘any time’ abortions. And I’m not surprised that some hospitals choose not to say until after whatever limit is set. Though I’d love to know how much such policies are about real risk, and how much about avoiding the bad headlines.

    Least-worst solution is probably to let them go private. For the scan, and maybe later-term abortions. If they can afford the fees charged by whoever is willing to do the work, good luck to them. No, it’s not equal. Yes, there will be selective abortion. There will be anyway, as with fgm etc. Keep it away from the NHS’ core function, get some actual stats then see where we need to go.

  7. “If the NHS is supposed to be an amoral service provider, they can’t hide the sex of the child.”

    A friend of mine gave birth in the UK recently, and apparently they refused to say the sex of the child due to sex-selective abortion concerns.

    It’s a !

  9. Hah, meant to put “redacted” in ”, but obviously something thought I was uploading some sort of nasty script.

  10. Somehow I doubt these women would have a problem with sex selective abortion if the sex selected was male.

    In the end either it is the woman’s right to choose or not. If women want to kill their daughters it is her right to do so. Or not. We cannot second guess every decision a woman makes. I think it is inherently immoral to abort a child, but it is no more or less to do so because you want a son than if you want to look good in your bikini now you have booked a ticket to Majorca. It is also impossible to enforce any such law.

  11. ‘to give birth could harm both the baby and the mother’s mental health’

    Bến Tre solution. Destroy the baby to save it.

  12. Our oldest, now almost 18, was born while we lived in Tower Hamlets. We weren’t allowed to know the sex of the baby. Our youngest came along after we moved to Essex. No such prohibition there. Horses for courses I guess. Or maybe courses for horses.

  13. This filthy bitch has killed more than some concentration camp guards.

    I wish she would burn for eternity.
