    Sweden rules 'gender-based' abortion legal

    Swedish health authorities have ruled that gender-based abortion is not illegal according to current law and can not therefore be stopped, according to a report by Sveriges Television.

    The Local reported in February that a woman from Eskilstuna in southern Sweden had twice had abortions after finding out the gender of the child.

    The woman, who already had two daughters, requested an amniocentesis in order to allay concerns about possible chromosome abnormalities. At the same time, she also asked to know the foetus's gender.

    Doctors at Mälaren Hospital expressed concern and asked Sweden’s National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen) to draw up guidelines on how to handle requests in the future in which they "feel pressured to examine the foetus’s gender" without having a medically compelling reason to do so.

    The board has now responded that such requests and thus abortions can not be refused and that it is not possible to deny a woman an abortion up to the 18th week of pregnancy, even if the foetus's gender is the basis for the request.

    It's not about the legality of having an abortion for any reason under Swedish law, it's about whether their national health care system will pay for an abortion due to gender reasons.

    Their law about abortion is not much different from ours. They just have national health care.

    It still comes down to killing a sector of your population because you deem them less valuable. In this case - female children. Next time maybe it will be potentially short children if your sperm donor was on the short side. (Swedes despise runty people.)
