Abortion, sexism and lunacy

There are some times where the orthodoxy of the day plumbs such depths of incoherence it is hard to know where to begin.

Can there be a better example than the confusion encountered by liberal sorts when confronted by the issue of abortion motivated by gender selection?

As I commented on this Guardian thread - which is a carnival of all the confused, angry and incoherent tropes of the right-on collapsing under the weight of their internal contradictions - "The idea that a foetus has no right not to be killed, but has a right to be protected from sexism is truly some kind of nadir of addled pc 'liberalism'."

There is no doubt a longer post in this; the subject of abortion is one dominated by pseudo-science, argument shifting, non-sequiturs, logical fails, biological ignorance, and quasi religious redefinitions of reality itself. In short, fashionable nonsense par excellence.

But that's for another day...
