Abortion Apathy

One of my students, who is a medical practitioner in her home country and is studying here to regain her accredidation, wrote that abortion based on sex is not ethical (Don’t kill girl babies because they are girls.), but that abortion in general is fine because some people are not ready to have babies. Could I just argue that I’m not ready to have any girl babies? Would that be okay?

Jeff O’Bryant wrote that 3000 soldiers have died in Iraq since the beginning of the war. And in that same time period over 5,000,000 abortions have occurred. Why are people so concerned about the first and so uncaring about the second?
