The (U.K.) Daily Telegraph published a front-page article yesterday on the growing trend of sex-selection abortions taking place in the country aimed at exterminating unwanted girls. The apparent rise in gendercide coincides with increased immigration rates from India and China, where the murderous practice is common:
The Government was on Thursday night urged to open an inquiry after officials found signs that birth rates for girls and boys vary noticeably according to where their mothers were born.
A health minister said that these differences in rates of male and female births among mothers of certain nationalities may “fall outside the range considered possible without intervention”.
It forms the first official statistical evidence potentially backing up concerns that sex-selection abortions are being carried out in Britain.
Andrew Lansley, the former health secretary, last year criticised the “illegal and morally wrong” practice following a Daily Telegraph investigation into the issue.
After this newspaper received information that the procedures were becoming increasingly common for cultural and social reasons, undercover reporters filmed doctors offering women terminations based on gender.
Former MP Lord Alton has been a leading whistleblower:
Last night, Lord Alton said the presence of sex-selective abortion in the UK could be a product of terminations becoming too “routine”.
“Abortion has become so routine in Britain with 600 taking place every day that people have accepted the mantra that it’s just a matter of choice but that’s not what the law says,” he said. “There is a fundamental debate to take place here.”
He said the practice may have been imported from areas of the world where it is more common, including India and China “where sex-selective abortions have taken place on an industrial scale”.
This is the real war on women — and it’s the grisly consequence of “planned parenthood” taken to evil extremes.
If you’ve been paying attention, you know it’s here in America, too. In June, investigative tour-de-force Lila Grace Rose and Live Action once again exposed the gendercide-endorsing zealots of Planned Parenthood.
