    I like the attitude . . . "Of course, we Brits [Westerners] would never mess this up like the wogs would."

    Evidence from other countries does indeed support how unbalanced things can get...look at China.

    I just love the way the pro-aborts make up their "statistics" as they go along: "And the evidence from other countries is that very few parents would actively seek out sex selection — certainly not enough to tip the demographic balance either way. In America, sex selection has been available since 1995 for family balancing, but has been used only by about 2,000 couples." Anyone know where that number came from? Or is it like the number of back-alley deaths Nathanson admits fabricating?
