No title defense for Chloe Esposito - "a wonderful unexpected surprise has happened", using her own words. The August will bring something else into her life than another Olympic medal.

1) They generally don't have 'their abortionist'

2) Most elite female athletes who are in her position in the athletic sense would be using birth control

3) I'm fairly sure, but this is an assumption, most elite female athletes with who birth control didn't work would sit out the Olympics instead of thinking "oh ok, abortion!".

 

I mean, we can have nonsense discussions all day long, but saying most in her position would just go for an abortion is just borderline bullshit.

1) True

2) Most likely

3) depends.

 

You can have a child whenever. You only get a few chances at a gold medal. I think in a non-Olympic year, most female athletes would have the kid, but in an Olympic year...

Yeah, most female athletes would focus on the Olympics and like anyone who doesn't think it's the right time for a child (yet) use birth control. In the rare case where that doesn't work, I really, really don't think a majority would almost literally throw away their future child. Going all "well most Europeans and Americans would just do that" borders on the insane. Then again, we know it was coming from someone who is generally posting not much else than how much everything is always the fault of every other part of the world except his (more specially, the big bad West), we're probably giving it way too much 'credibility' by even responding like this. Sorry.

Well, talking about that, it was said by someone from a country, where the selective abortion is common when a child appears to be a girl.

I don't how much you know about India. But saying that this is common is just a joke. I agree that this problem still exists in India but it has been improving significantly in most parts of the country. India is a huge Nation, so eradicating a issue is not so easy as in most countries.

Yes, maybe I overrated it - I forgot India is over a billion people nation, still the numbers I found (about 50 thousand) do make a strong impression here in Europe. Whatever liberal people think about abortion, such a kind of it is frightening for us.

It doesn't amount to something around 0.00004 percent of the population. 

I am not sure where you got the data. 

The figure you are mentioning is in 20 million births in 2019.
