Selective Abortions in China

From the mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party. Take it for what its worth. To its credit, the SCPFP has launched a "Care For Girls" program, evidence of which I noticed when I traveled to our daughter's orphanage in ShangGao. There were billboards along the road that said something to the effect of "Girls are just as good as boys", something like that.

China to keep on with fight against selective abortions
China has not relaxed its fight against sex selection abortions even though its newly revised Criminal Law does not criminalize the practice, say family planning officials.

"The decision to not criminalize sex selection abortions does not mean any policy relaxation," said an official with the State Commission for Population and Family Planning (SCPFP) who declined to be named.
