“Baby Gender Selection – Safe And Natural”
February 6th, 2015 by INMED
This promotional line from The Birth Planning Centre is representative of an entire industry built around the desire to birth children of a particular sex, usually male, and a particular genetic makeup, usually flawless. Gender biased sex selection is pursued on the premise that any deviation from the desire will result in killing that particular baby. This practice is especially common in Asia, where it is also absolutely illegal. But the desire for profit making causes powers at multiple level to look aside.
In a heartening and unprecedented social transformation – one in contradistinction to Choose The Sex Of Your Baby – Chinese are increasingly fostering formerly abandoned children. The state orphanages which were once filled primarily with girls, babies with birth defects, and genetic disorders like Down’s, are progressively less populated today, as Chinese citizens take advantage of these new opportunities to provide a loving home – especially for babies who are female and less than flawless.
