The committee welcomes the very comprehensive report by Ms
Doris Stump on behalf of the Committee on Equal Opportunities for
Women and Men, which deals with the sensitive issue of prenatal
sex selection in a balanced way.
The committee fully supports the draft resolution and the
draft recommendation. It would, however, like to propose some amendments
with a view to ensuring that the harmful consequences of prenatal
sex selection – rooted in persisting inequality between women and
men in our societies – are made clear to all.
