Sex selection and the population policy: the medical profession’s responsibilities
As a result of sustained agitation by women’s groups in the 1980s, a law was enacted banning the use of prenatal diagnostic technology for sex detection enabling sex selective abortion. However, the practice continued despite this law. Recently, health and women’s groups went to court to enforce the law, and also called for amendments to cover sex selection by other means. Now some doctors are seeking the court’s permission to permit pre-conceptual sex selection.
There are currently no refbacks.
