Mind your own business


Though the June 6 editorial “China’s baby bust” made important points about China’s social engineerin­g of women’s reproducti­on, it neglected to draw a straight line to the antiaborti­on movement in this country. Any nation that can control women’s reproducti­on is wrong, be it for limiting the number of children women can have or dictating where and when women must deliver children.

The right to privacy drove the Supreme Court’s decision on abortion in this country. China and the United States should mind their own business.
