The concept that abortion is a womens’ issue or a feminist issue I have always found bleakly funny. The dirty little secret about abortion is of course that it has been a bonanza for predatory males. As actor Gary Graham in this incredibly moving piece notes: “So this abortion thing was pretty damn convenient for a guy.” Feminist self-deception aside, abortion is all about letting men enjoy sex without consequences. The consequences are of course merely shifted from the man to the dead child, and to the woman who has to pretend that destroying the life she carried within her was her “right”, and that she feels happy about this, dreadful nightmares notwithstanding, crying jags that obviously have nothing to do with the abortion, feeling worthless, being unable to quite look straight in the mirror, etc.
Now womens’ liberation and abortion enter a new comic realm. Hattip to Ed Morrissey at Hot Air. Sweden has approved sex selection abortions. Of course there is really nothing new about this. Under Roe in our nation sex selection abortion goes on all the time. It also occurs in Canada, and in most other Western nations. However, I do believe that Sweden is the first Westen nation to specifically approve sex selection abortion.
In other words, women are to be liberated now by giving them the freedom to kill children in their wombs for the fatal flaw of not being male. By this standard, the liberation of women in our nation will be complete when female infanticide is legalized.
