Does Sex Selection Happen in America?

Hosted by

Yesterday, House Republicans failed to enact a ban on abortions based on the sex of a child, but assert that  they succeeded in embarrassing Democrats, claiming that Democrats don't support women's rights as much as they say. How persistent is so-called "sex selection" in the US?  While it's "hard to assess, since it's rarely something people will admit to doing," it appears that "educated guessing" does exist, especially in certain ethnic communities. Anat Shenker Osorio co-wrote the recent article that appeared in RH Reality Check and the Atlantic magazine.
