On sex selection abortion, from one Mark Steyn:
Indeed, given the decline in sex ratios in Asia and elsewhere, if daughters had feathers or four legs, they’d be on the endangered species list.
His title is “Killing her softly,” which does nicely as a description of abortion in general. Abortion is a kind of quiet, soft killing, not quite a killing at all, really, or so we are told. When pressed those who actually believe this immediately become unsure as to when it does become a killing, it’s all so very confusing. But until they figure it out, they certainly aren’t working on the precautionary principle, are they.
