There are few practices that are more anti-female than sex-selection abortion. World-wide, the vast majority of such abortions result in the deaths of girls. That being the case, this story from LifeSite News would indicate that Sweden has become a bastion of reactionary patriarchy:

Swedish health authorities have ruled that it is not illegal to kill a healthy unborn child based simply on its gender, according to Swedish news service The Local.

Doctors had asked health authorities about the matter after a woman from southern Sweden had two of her children killed in utero for being an undesired sex.  The woman had already given birth to two daughters.

The gender was determined during an amniocentesis requested to determine whether the child had a disability.

Concerned doctors at Mälaren Hospital then asked Sweden’s National Board of Health and Welfare to determine a protocol for future instances in which they “feel pressured to examine the foetus’s gender” without a medical necessity.

The medical board responded that such requests must be accommodated.

Words fail me.
