Asia's Generation XY

Reporting on "how the trend toward choosing boys over girls through sex-selective abortions has spread through the developing world, particularly in Asia," Ujala Sehgal focuses on Science's Mara Hvistendahl, who "lays the blame squarely on western governments and businesses that have exported technology and pro-abortion practices without considering the consequences" — Western Governments Are Blamed for Asia's Shortage of Women.

"Hvistendahl claims western governments actively promoted abortion and sex selection in the developing world, encouraging the liberalization of abortion laws and subsidizing sales of ultrasounds as a form of population control," we learn. Ms. Hvistendahl herself writes, "It took millions of dollars in funding from US organizations for sex determination and abortion to catch on in the developing world." However, "Richard Dawkins," of all people, "takes on Hvistendahl's thesis, arguing that Western science and governments are not culpable for making sex selection possible and prevalent -- and the fault remains in cultural practices."

As far as I'm concerned, it goes without saying that this was part of the post-West's war on what's left of the East.
