From Reuters (link):

The northern Chinese province of Hebei has closed more than 200 clinics for telling women the sex of their fetuses so they can abort girls, a state newspaper said on Wednesday.

China launched a in the early 1980s to curb its population, now over 1.3 billion, but the restrictions have bolstered a traditional preference for baby boys and have come under fire from Western countries and human rights activists.

In rural areas of Hebei, there were 134 boys born for every 100 girls, the Shanghai Daily said.
