Professor Wendy Savage told the Mail on Sunday:”If a woman does not want to have a foetus who is one sex or the other, forcing her is not going to be good for the eventual child, and it’s not going to be good for (the mother’s) mental health.”
“The foetus is a potential human life at that stage; it is not an actual human life … I think you’ve got to concentrate on the (rights of the) woman.”
Sex-selective abortion is thought to have led to 24 million girls being aborted over the last 14 years. According to the NHS’ 2014 study of census information, sex-selective abortion is believed to be an issue in Britain’s South Asian communities, where there is a preference for boys.
Seems that ‘women’s rights’ campaigners only care about your rights if you manage to survive the maximum time the state allows parents to terminate you. Sad.
