Access to Information

In the UK:

The Labour party is proposing to ban parents from discovering the sex of an unborn child early in pregnancy for fear that it could lead to selective abortion.

I hate this kind of thing. All women get to be punished for the behavior of a small number of lunatics.

Kenan Malik is right, denying people access to information looks like an easy solution to many issues but that ease conceals how deeply immoral it is.

  1. This kind of ban has been a law in India for many years. But what this has led to is a proliferation of underground clinics, where people still get sex selective abortions. I don’t think it’ll be any different in the UK.
