Sex-selection abortion

leave a comment »

아기를 낳을 때마다 성별이 궁금했다. 딸일까, 아들일까? 아들일까, 딸일까? 내가 선택할 수 있는 일이 아니었다. 그저 받아들일 뿐. 시대가 변해 부모가 기대하던 성별과 다르다 할지라도 받아들이지 않을 수 없게 되었다.

성별이 마음에 들지 않아 낙태를 하는 일. 영어로는 ‘Sex-selection abortion’ – 또는 ‘Sex-selective abortion’ – 이다. 어느 사회든 생명은 존중되어야 한다.

 

The law, signed by Gov. Asa Hutchinson on Wednesday, banning “sex-selection abortion” requires doctors to ask a woman seeking an abortion if  she knows the gender of the fetus she is carrying, and if she does, to tell her it is illegal to choose an abortion based on that information.
