Selective abortion of girls increases in Armenia, says UN Population Fund

20 December 2011

The Armenian representative of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has warned of a rise in unborn girls being aborted in Armenia.

Garik Hayrapetyan told a news conference that: "In ten to 20 years, we will face a deficit of women - that means, of potential mothers". [AFP via Yahoo!, 19 December]

Anthony Ozimic of SPUC commented: "UNFPA's words of concern about sex-selective abortion are empty, considering that UNFPA has for decades been complicit in China's forced abortion programme, which is largely responsible for China's massive gender imbalance."
