Via Hypocrisy In The UK:
Oh dear, dear me, the evils of vice and corruption! The Daily Telegraph spells out the newest moral quandary of the British NHS below.
Doctors at British clinics have been secretly filmed agreeing to terminate foetuses purely because they are either male or female. Clinicians admitted they were prepared to falsify paperwork to arrange the abortions even though it is illegal to conduct such “sex-selection” procedures. Andrew Lansley, the Health Secretary, said: “I’m extremely concerned to hear about these allegations. Sex selection is illegal and is morally wrong. I’ve asked my officials to investigate this as a matter of urgency.”
Got that? Taxpayer-funded killing of innocent but unwanted human beings is morally acceptable for any reason except gender selection.
The Wintery Knight lists some good (by which I mean bad) quotes from related articles:
Another consultant, Claudine Domoney, who works with 132 Healthwise clinic in Harley Street, central London, agreed to arrange for a woman to abort a boy after being told that she and her husband already had a son from his first marriage. The practice is known as “family balancing”.
In a consultation room in the Chelsea and Westminster hospital, the woman, who was about 18 weeks pregnant, explained her reasons for the termination “It’s a boy, and that’s the reason, we don’t want to have a second boy.”
Scientific fact: They already have two boys. One is just “safely” located in her womb. They have two, but only want one, so they plan to kill the second one — at taxpayer expense, of course! Because Liberals think it is a human right to be able to kill some unwanted human beings.
“It’s obviously taken a little bit of time to decide this?” asked Miss Domoney, in reference to the fact that the woman was 18 weeks pregnant.
Well, gee, if you took a long to think about killing an unwanted human being I guess that makes it OK.
The vast majority of gender selection abortions kill female human beings for the sole reason that they are female human beings. This puts feminists in a quandry, but they love unrestricted abortion so much that they can never clearly denounce gender selection abortions. They realize that fighting these would lead to an obvious question: If killing an unwanted human being because of gender is wrong, why is killing because of education, career, love life, economics, etc.?
