A Worldwide War against Baby Girls: Sex-Selective Abortion Goes Global
Sex-selective abortion–terminating a pregnancy based on gender–is a modern phenomenon. As the expense of sex-selection technology like ultrasound plummets, it is being used in a growing number of countries, almost universally to eliminate girls, and generally with the assistance of health care professionals. In her new book, Unnatural Selection (PublicAffairs, June 2011), Mara Hvistendahl, a Beijing-based correspondent for Science magazine, documents how this practice has severely altered the natural balance of boys and girls in increasingly many societies, including China, South Korea, Vietnam, India, and the Caucasus republics. Is the worst yet ahead? Is there hope for reversing this scourge? Join us for what promises to be an enlightening–and sobering–discussion with the author and AEI scholar Nicholas Eberstadt.
Panel: Mara Hvistendahl, Nicholas Eberstadt, Danielle Pletka

The United States and Europe have pioneered this social revolution, but in some places around the world, this notion is either unknown or vigorously rejected. Sub-Saharan Africa and the Muslim world are the worst offenders.
