Canada's largest nurses' union commends Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) editor in chief Dr. Rajendra Kale for his editorial calling for patient, rather than parking, centered health care.
Press Release January 20, 2012, 20 Jan 2012 [cached]
Dr. Rajendra Kale continued to create a debate nationwide in his last editorial as interim editor-in-chief of the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ). The editorial, titled "It's a girl! - could be a death sentence, called for a ban on disclosing the sex of a fetus until 30 weeks to prevent female feticide by sex-selective abortion.
"Female feticide happens in India and China by the millions, but is also happens in North America in numbers large enough to distort the male to female ratio in some ethnic groups," writes Dr. Kale. "Research in Canada has found the strongest evidence of sex selection at higher parities if previous children were girls among Asians."
The editorial is available online at Dr. Kale is an assistant professor in the Department of Medicine at the Faculty.
Globe and Mail: Bid to curb female feticide pushes hot buttons of abortion and culture - World Sikh Organization of Canada, 16 Jan 2012 [cached]
Rajendra Kale, interim editor of the Canadian Medical Association Journal, called for a ban on disclosing the sex of a fetus until 30 weeks, a point at which abortions are difficult to obtain. His editorial cited research that suggests some Asian immigrants are aborting unwanted females. The move ignited opposition on several sides, from those who decried any curtailing of a woman's right to information about her pregnancy to those who questioned the accuracy of research that paints Asian immigrants as more prone to abort girls. "Frankly I'm disgusted," Dr. Kale said in an interview, referring to sex-selective abortion. "There's no way this should happen in Canada. This is discrimination against women at its worst." The national body representing Canada's obstetricians and gynecologists contends that Dr. Kale's proposal flies in the face of accepted standards for patient care and fails to acknowledge that changing deep-rooted cultural beliefs, not imposing heavy-handed restrictions, is the key.
Also cited in Dr. Kale's editorial is a U.S. study of 65 female Indian immigrants that found that 40 per cent had previously aborted a female fetus and 90 per cent of those currently pregnant with a girl had pursued the idea of abortion.
Dr. Jha said that until there is a clear picture of the scale of the problem and which communities are involved, it's premature to adopt the restrictive measures suggested by Dr. Kale's editorial.
Dr. Kale has been interim editor-in-chief at the CMAJ since last fall and has consistently made headlines with his editorials, including a piece that called for an end to hospital parking fees. Originally from India, Dr. Kale worked as a senior editor at the British Medical Journal before taking a position with the CMAJ as senior deputy editor in 2008. In the editorial released Monday, he said a ban on revealing the sex of a fetus until the 30th week of pregnancy - information he describes as "medically irrelevant" - would require only a temporary compromise from women of all ethnicities and could save thousands of girls.
