Re "Bill to ban sex selection abortions fails in Health Committee" (May 7): So who is waging war on women? A bill that should have had unanimous support to prevent babies being aborted simply because of their sex, failed to pass the Health Committee hearing at the capitol yesterday.

This committee has a substantial Democratic majority. Are we going to continue to ignore the fact that there are 160 million females missing in Asia becuase of sex-selection abortions? Will we allow such discrimination against women to proliferate in California. It is no secret that baby girls are aborted because of male preference in Asian society.

It seems there is no political will to stop this blatant discrimination against women. How sad to record this in 2014.
