If Baby Girls Have to Die to Protect the Right to Sexist Abortions, So What?

Alissa Golob blogs about a post by pro-abort OBGYN Jen Hunter regarding sex-selection abortion.

In Jen Hunter's post, the only misogyny considered is that against the mother. Not that misogyny against the mom isn't worthy of consideration. But the attitude among those who support abortion seems to be: If baby girls have to die in the name of fighting misogyny, then so what?

The issue behind sex-selection abortion is that girls are killed. That seems to be a minor detail, certainly something less important than abortion. How do you promote women's equality when abortion eliminates demographic equality? It certainly makes it more difficult to advance women's equality when women are less numerous, therefore less present.
