Maria Hvistendahl’s recent book “Unnatural Selection: Choosing Boys over Girls..” has created a storm of controversy. People have begun to recognize that her unequivocal feminist commitment to choice includes moral indignation when people don’t choose the way that she fancies.
Domestically, in the United States, the fires are flamed when someone points out that way more black people die from abortion than white people. One New York organization purchased a billboard proclaiming, “The most dangerous place for an African-American is in the womb.” The African-American community is now doing to itself what the KKK could not.
Ms. Hvistendahl appears to exhibit a certain amount of hypocrisy advocating free choice, and then simultaneously disagreeing with it. Her observation of what choices are being made seems to add weight to the argument that we should not have that choice.
