Nikita Mehta Case
The pro-choice arguments that almost all the women bloggers have put forth essentially work to justify female infanticide or killing off a 10 year old mentally disabled kid etc. Allowing pro-choice, for the reasons mentioned by these women, would set a precedent for killing life outside the womb. I like pro-choice. Rather than some human rights group activists, who just want publicity, to be in control - it does make sense for the people who are responsible and accountable to have more control. But that is not enough to ring fence the problem. If one wants to argue for pro-choice the key would be to make an argument that distinguishes between life inside a womb and a life outside the womb.
P.S: Changing the definition of "life" requires religious endorsement, which might not be a bright idea.
