The Global War Against Baby Girls | First Things

Boy? You live. Girl? You die?
This is just one side effect of the attempts of either governments to limit population growth (eg:China's 'one child only' policy) or when parents are allowed to use gender as a selection criterion for abortion. Whether or not you believe in the morality of abortion, the prejudice against females by families who want only one child is becoming an issue that must be addressed.

It does however create a specific conundrum from those who support abortion as being solely a woman's right to choose. How could they support the prohibition of gender selection as a criterion for abortion when they do not hold that the unborn female child is actually a person? 

It's a question worthy of some thought.
