Utah lawmaker seeks to ban sex-selective abortion
Saturday - 12/1/2012, 5:35pm EST
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Women would be prohibited from having abortions based on whether they want a boy or a girl under legislation proposed by a Utah lawmaker.
State Sen. Margaret Dayton tells the Deseret News ( http://bit.ly/VhEkMb) she also is considering preventing women from getting abortions based on the race of a baby.
Planned Parenthood of Utah Executive Director Karrie Galloway opposes the Orem Republican's proposed "Gender Selection Abortion Prohibition" bill.
She says she views the bill as a "solution looking for a problem" because she's unaware of any abuse concerning such abortions.
The selective abortion of female fetuses is most common in countries where cultural norms value male children over female children, including parts of China, India and Pakistan.
Arizona, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania already ban sex-selective abortions.
