As the Colorado state legislature gets ready to debate a ban on sex-selective abortions, a recent story will provide additional considerations for our legislators to mull over.
Usually, sex-selective abortion is mentioned in relation to parents, limited in the number of children they can have (as with the one-child policy in China), opting to have a male child over a female child. The reasoning behind this choice is that a boy would stand a better chance of supporting the parents in their old age.
However, other reasons exist for sex-selective abortions, and one of them is described in an article by Michael Snyder on the “Before It’s News” site.
The article references a feminist who chose to abort her child when she found out the child was a boy. Her reasoning was that she “couldn’t bring another monster into the world.”
As is detailed in the article, the woman in question detests men (except, it appears, when sexual intercourse is involved) and concluded her abortion was “something that would actually make a difference,” a positive contribution to the world.
In Colorado the reasoning of either of these two scenarios, or any other scenario for that matter, is not significant since there are no restrictions in Colorado regarding the reasons for procuring an abortion.
Little girls and boys are both killed by abortions, and for any reason whatsoever.
It is time to change this paradigm in Colorado.
