I am against gender selection abortion, but I question how much it happens in Ameria and whether this legislation would do anything to stop it.
Gender selection abortion occurs sometimes in the countrside of India and China, but it is very rare in the city where its use if frowned on by the culture. I lived in China for several years and only know of one city woman who obtained one. And who comes to America from these countries? It is the educated and these are the least likely to obtain a gender selection abortion.
Next, how would an abortion providor know that a woman was seeking a gender selection abortion? She most likely got her sonogram somewhere else. There is nothing to tie the two procedures together. So enforcement is hard
