China DOES restrict *some* abortions

It is often said in the same breath that Canada, along with China and North Korea are the only countries in the world that do not restrict abortion.

However, the case is not absolutely true in China. While abortion is widely practiced, China has the decency to ban sex-selection abortion.

It is legal for an organization to offer sex-selection abortion.

I tried to verify whether North Korea does the same thing, but was unsuccessful. I suspect it does not have any restrictions.
