WK thinks this is unfortunate. I understand that perspective.
I beg to differ, in that I don’t want fetuses which are members of particular groups, whether females, or racial minorities, or whatever, to receive protection, while others do not.
I am not a utilitarian, nor a femiservative, femingelical; no asinine comparisons of saving some children on a bus for me. I oppose the murder of all unborn, and want equal protection under the law for all fetuses, and nothing less than that.
The leftist BBC reports.
MPs have defeated a cross-party bid to clarify in law that abortion on the grounds of gender alone is illegal in the UK.
Conservative MP Fiona Bruce, who spearheaded the move, said the law was being “interpreted in different ways”.
But her proposal was defeated by 292 to 201. A review of the extent of sex selective abortion was agreed to.
[…]Her amendment would not have changed the law, but sought to update 1967 legislation that was drafted before it was possible to identify the sex of a foetus.
[…]Making the case for the change, the Congleton MP said her amendment would “clarify beyond doubt in statute that sex selective abortion is illegal in UK law”.
Now you might think that the Labour Party and the Liberal Democrats would be against killing unborn girls, just because they are the “wrong” sex.
