Indian feminist speaks out in support of sex-selection abortions

Nivedita Menon, Indian feminist scholar:

“[W]e cannot hold simultaneously that abortion involves the right of women to control their bodies, but that women must be restricted by law from choosing specifically to abort female fetuses. We seem to be counterposing the rights of (future) women to be born against the rights of (present) women to control over their bodies.”
