    Then why have other countries passed laws banning sex-selection abortions?

    You have a zero in the "advantage" column only if you think that human beings can't do any better than to abort based on gender (or race or whatever). I think we can do better.

    The same reason it was proposed here- empty political gesture.

    No... Again, I have a zero in the advantage column because it's super rare in the US to start with, so that means the advantage is definitely very low. But then you have the fact that it would presumably never actually prevent a gender selection abortion, since people presumably already aren't telling their doctors that that is what their reason is, and even if they are, they wouldn't after a law like this went into effect. And, even if they did still tell their doctor, that would just mean that doctor couldn't perform it, so they'd just go to another doctor and not tell them that time...
    Total tax rates- People living in poverty: 16.2%. The median American: 27%. Working people who make over $140k/year: 31%. The top 1%: 30%. Super rich investors: around 15%. Help the democrats retake the house.
