Sex selection abortion .. called brave new world

If you want to wake up without the morning cup of coffee, try reading this latest article in the NYT on sex selection kits.  As one of six children (five girls and one boy)  I take this pretty personally. 

PP , NOW,NARAL and the rest of the abortion industry keep tweeting to stop the war on women. Well where are they in this fight. Anyone? Anyone?

“Seven weeks is a different time in pregnancy,” said Dr. James Egan, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Connecticut Health Center who was a co-author of a study on sex selection with Dr. Chapman and others. “Women haven’t had the ultrasound where you see the fetus that looks like a baby. Many people don’t even know that a woman is pregnant. And you can have a medical termination,” using pills like RU-486, which can be used at home discreetly before 10 weeks of pregnancy.
The fetus...Latin for offspring looks like a baby because it is a baby.. and he makes the point that visually viewing the ultrasound viewing increases the chance that abortion vulnerable women will choose LIFE so you can end the life of your baby before you get emotionally attached, other people do not know you are pregnant and you can use the at home chemical abortion, RU 486!!! Better check out the death rate to women first!!! Do you want to scream that medical doctors who have taken the Hippocratic Oath would be saying this??
"But clinics and some ethicists say this type of sex selection is more acceptable because it occurs before embryos are implanted, before pregnancy."
Father of Modern Genetics" Dr. Jerome Lejeune told the lawmakers: "To accept the fact that after fertilization has taken place a new human has come into being is no longer a matter of taste or opinion ... it is plain experimental evidence." Notice he did not say after implantation.

“For someone who has two girls and wants to have a boy, so each sibling can grow up with brother and sister, what’s wrong with that?” Dr. Grifo said.
What's wrong with that???
"He said that “if a woman calls to make the appointment, the couple almost always wants a female. If a man calls, they almost always want a male.”
Some fetal DNA test-makers are trying to discourage sex selection by not selling in China and India, and requiring customers to sign waivers saying that is not their motivation"
Yes, that will surely work...sign a waiver saying they are not doing sex selection abortion.  We have no cause to condemn China or India. Isn't our motto in the abortion on demand without apology. They don't ask why you are aborting, just collect the $$$ upfront.

Some states are moving to ban sex selection abortion but the abortion industry is  concerned about the PR image this may have on them as they oppose this....
The laws would probably not survive court challenges, said John Robertson, a professor of law and bioethics at the University of Texas. But while abortion rights groups, like NARAL Pro-Choice America, oppose such bans, they may be less eager to fight them politically or in court because sex selection is not the most socially sympathetic motivation for abortion.
"Still, fetal DNA tests for sex determination and other traits present “issues that I don’t think many general obstetricians are ready to deal with,” Dr. Egan said. “It’s a brave new world.”
Indeed, a brave new world for those who survive as planned, perfect and privileged.
