China moves to ban late abortions

From the Guardian: “One of the world’s least controlled regimes will be tightened next month, when the Chinese city of Guiyang introduces a pilot programme aimed at halting the widespread termination of female foetuses.

The new policy bans doctors from carrying out abortions on most women who are more than 14 weeks into pregnancy. In many cases, the parents delay making a decision until ultrasound checks can determine the sex of their child. If it is a boy – who can carry on the family name – there is more likelihood that the pregnancy will be completed. If it is a girl – considered less valuable by many families – there is a greater chance of abortion.”
