Unnatural Selection: Choosing Boys over Girls and the Consequences of a World Full of Men

Unnatural Selection: Choosing Boys over Girls and the Consequences of a World Full of Men - Mara Hvistendahl I have to admit that I couldn't finish this book, but I will someday. It makes me furious. What I don't get is why the women's movement isn't all over this. Supposedly, it's "profeminist" to be in favor of allowing women to kill their babies. However, it seems that the women are killing the next generation of women. Therefore, there will be far fewer women to fight the good fight, and it seems that in areas where women are killing the next generation of women, that the women in those areas are traded like commodities, which undoes all that the women's movement has done.

Also, will everyone stop saying, "Oh yes, they are doing that 'over there.'" WE ARE DOING THIS OVER HERE.

It was making me crazy. I had to stop. I fear for future generations of women.
