Female Selective Abortion

With the introduction of modern medical procedures, which can detect the sex of the unborn child, the transition into death may actually occur before birth for females in many parts of the world today. Female-selective abortion is practiced among many societies in Asia and certain Asian immigrant groups in North America, and is motivated by "strong son preference" (Miller, 2001). This is in turn typically related to the expense of raising a daughter and providing a dowry payment at her marriage. Miller's evidence for the practice of female-selective abortion is based on an analysis of male-biased sex ratios at birth among certain societies, and she warns ominously that societies with unbalanced sex ratios exhibit a proclivity for violence.
