The government does not force these women to abort their children. Instead this is done in the context of population control where families are pressured to have only one child.
The preference is for a male child so that the family can benefit from his labor. Upon seeing that the gestating child is a female - many women CHOOSE to have an abortion, getting pregnant later on with the hopes that next time it will be a male.
Let's be bound to "intellectual honesty here". The fact is that there is indeed a "choice" being made. The government is not forcing the woman to abort her child thus the normal claims of external coercion should be removed from this debate. In the context of 1 billion humans in a nation and growing certain "family planning" policies have been implemented.
Just as we in America are producing public policies under the broader umbrella of "Global Warming" so too are the Chinese to address their population problems.
Is the CHOICE to abort a gestating human being because you prefer a male any less of a valid "choice" to do so because you have the:
- Wrong man?
- Wrong amount of money?
- Wrong time in your life?
Are you sure that "Abortion = Power"?
