Sex-selective abortions should be allowed, British Medical Association ethics expert says [United Kingdom]

Forcing pregnant women who do not want a child of one sex or the other to give birth could harm both the baby and the mother's mental health, a leading doctors' union member has said.

Prof Wendy Savage, a voting member of the British Medical Association Council, also said women should have the right to terminate a pregnancy at any stage.

The comments by Prof Savage, a women's rights campaigner and retired obstetrician and gynaecologist, come after a proposal to decriminalise terminations passed the first hurdle in the House of Commons last week.
