Discussion: Will the Law on Not Revealing the Fetus Gender have an effect?
June 6, 12:00

Annually 1500 female children are not  born in Armenia due to sex-selective abortions. The bill proposed by the Armenian Health Ministry which makes informing parents of the sex of a fetus until 30 weeks of pregnancy illegal, notwithstanding the possible corruption risks, aims at eliminating the ‘son-centrism’ among the Armenians.

‘Sex-selective abortions are social rather than health issue. The given bill is primarily  a message to the public and seeks to protect those women who have to make abortions under their family members’ pressure,’ stated Garik Hayrapetyan, UN Population Fund Executive Representative, at the Media Center hosted panel discussion on the bill initiated by the Armenian Health Ministry. The bill proposes to ban doctors from informingparents of their future child’s gender until 30 weeks of pregnancy.
