Late-term abortionist admits to committing sex-selective abortions

Warren Hern, after tiller, late-term abortion, sex-selective

Sex-selective abortion, a form of gendercide, still flourishes around the globe despite erroneous claims that it doesn’t exist and pleas for it to stop due to the resulting distorted sex ratios. Yet abortionists continue to be willing to commit these abortions, killing a preborn child for no other reason than their gender.

Late-term abortionist Warren Hern was profiled by Elaine Godfrey for The Atlantic, in which Hern was described as an “abortion absolutist” who will commit an abortion for any reason. Godfrey, trying to find cracks in Hern’s pro-abortion resolve, used the example of sex-selective abortion. But Hern is willing to commit these abortions as well, and he rakes in a massive profit from later abortions — charging up to $25,000 for a single abortion procedure.



“Hern had told me about a woman who’d sought an abortion because she didn’t want to have a baby girl. I thought he had refused,” she wrote. “But when I followed up to ask him why, I learned that I had misunderstood. Hern said he had done abortions for sex selection twice: once for this woman; and once for someone who’d desperately wanted a girl. It was their choice to make, he explained.”

Gendercide is often viewed as a problem that plagues countries such as China and India. Gendercide is the most prevalent there, with men outnumbering women by 70 million, and leading to numerous human rights abuses, such as sex trafficking, prostitution, and crime. Men are suffering from epidemics of depression and loneliness, while more women commit suicide in China than anywhere else in the world. And the female babies that survive pregnancy are often abandoned to suffer in orphanages where they live in terrible conditions.

Yet gendercide is a global issue, occurring even in the United States — as Hern demonstrated. In Australia, it has become prevalent enough to begin skewing the gender ratio. A 2021 study found that an estimated 4.7 million fewer girls will be born over the next 10 years due to sex-selective “practices”… which mainly means sex-selective abortion. Sex-selective abortion, the researchers said, “is now a major contributor to the ‘missing women.'”
