Intelligender Tests for New Zealand

A new test to determine the sex of the unborn child as early as ten weeks, is to go on sale in New Zealand, having been promoted in pharmacies across Australia. The Intelligender test, which claims 90% accuracy, has been greeted with concern by the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists on the grounds that it will encourage sex selective abortion.

The manufacturer's reassurances offer little comfort to pro-life activists who know the terrible toll sex selective abortion is taking on communities around the world. Sex selective abortion is a global problem that is costing the lives of millions of baby girls and causing social unrest that will take generations to solve. Developing and marketing tests that make this war on baby girls even more effective is quite simply evil.
