Another Unintended Consequence of Abortion

A Reuters story in today’s Boston Globe about sentencing in a Chinese child prostitution trial ends with a mention of the “root causes”:

Aid groups say women and children in China also face a growing threat of being sold into marriage or trafficked for sex work as labor migration and a widening gender imbalance put them at risk.

A "widening gender imbalance" in a nation with over 1.3 BILLION people? How could such a thing occur? This story illustrates another unintended consequence of pro-choice and authoritarian family size laws, as readers of this blog already know.

This is a perfect example of the necessary blinders required to write for the MM. Root causes like abortion on demand, gov't proscription of procreation and the cultural impace of a male child are burned on the respective pyres of freedom of choice, socialism and multiculturism. And like a phoenix from the ashes, "gender imbalance" emerges.
