Sex Selection: Nobody's Business?

Last week, when Ross Douthat made a case for "regulating abortion," I asked him and other pro-lifers how far we should go. The Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act has a maximum jail sentence of two years for doctors who perform the forbidden procedure. Is that the kind of regulation we should apply to abortions? Would the country stand for it?

Today, let's turn the tables on those of us who oppose abortion regulation. How far should we go? Would you oppose regulation even of abortions aimed at preventing the births of girls? Because there's increasing evidence that such abortions, which take place by the millions in Asia, are now being done by the thousands in the United States as well.

I still believe that these abortions should be allowed; your body is your body, even if I find this atrocious...which I do. and frankly, MOST people don't want another child of the same gender when their first few are that gender. I don't see anything that shows whether they screened for sex preference after the woman popped out a few boys first, and studies in China have shown that the women who go against the grain and have more than one child are largely happy to have a girl once they have a son.
