There is no practical difference between a Bangladeshi woman seeking to abort a female foetus because boys are more culturally valuable and a Fabian seeking the compulsory abortion of all offspring of those of low intelligence. Both practices are equally repugnant. Polly Toynbee's beloved Swedish fascists avoided taking the abortion decision by compulsorily sterilising the thicker Swedes until the 1970s, but this is morally no better. The left may argue that allowing Pakistani and Bangladeshi women to abort female foetuses is kinder than the common alternative fate for live-born infant girls - the 'accidental' rollover, asphyxiation during sleep. It's not. Both are heinous.
