Fr. Mark Hodges – February 2, 2018
CNN has a new euphemism for abortions that specifically target preborn girls: “sex-selection operations.”
In a January 30 report on India’s growing gender gap, the “most trusted name in news” talked about the country’s 63 million “missing” girls.
“The preference for boys and the availability of sex-selective operations, although illegal in India, means there’s a gender gap,” stated the report by Euan McKirdy.
But pro-life advocates told LifeSiteNews that the euphemism hides the reality that preborn girls are being eliminated by abortion on a massive scale simply because they are female, what amounts to “gendercide.”
“Euphemisms hide reality,” said the American Orthodox Institute’s Fr. Johannes Jacobse. “Sex is not really being ‘selected.’ A boy or girl is being destroyed.”
