Abortion services aren't about selling soap powder or shoes

Nadine Dorries's amendment to the health and social care bill is an
attempt to situate women's sexuality in the marketplace

Susie Orbach
The Guardian, Saturday 3 September 2011
Article history

Nadine Dorries's amendment is a reflection of our target- and profit-
driven culture. Photograph: Manor Photography/Alamy
You miss your period. Go to the fastest pregnancy testing service and
10 minutes after arriving at their office, the counsellor tells you
that you are pregnant. You cry. Like many women, you might not know
how you feel about it.

The counsellor sits with you and after a while asks if you know why
you are crying. You don't. A wanted pregnancy as much as a dreaded
pregnancy can play differently than all one's previous imaginings. You
sit for a bit longer and then leave. The counsellor says you could
ring to discuss things when or if you want.

Pressure from a charity that offers an abortion service as well? I
don't think so.

Our target- and profit-driven culture has deeply misunderstood two
things which come to bear on Nadine Dorries's amendment to the health
and social care bill.

Firstly, there is the nature of counselling, which is somehow
portrayed as exhortation to do something. To speak to a counsellor is
not to be guided into a behaviour. Quite the opposite. It is to
explore the feelings, the meanings, the options, the conflicts that
arise in relation to a discovered pregnancy. It is a space for
reflection rather than an invitation to act. If counsellors told you
what to do, it wouldn't be counselling. More importantly, it would be
disrespectful of the woman and the necessary process she needs to go
through in coming to her decision. Pregnancy isn't trivial. Neither is

Equally shockingly ignorant is the assumption that the British
Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) and Marie Stopes measure their
success by the number of abortions they provide. They aren't selling
soap powder or shoes. They are not compelled by a need to grow market
share and induce people to have abortions they don't need. They are
charities who provide dignified services to women, an outcome of their
founding principles that women's reproductive and psychological health
are crucial.

We don't in this culture impose one-child policies or openly attempt
to control women's fecundity. Women fought for the right to take
purposeful decisions around their fertility – a stance in contrast to
the ethos of our time where "sell, sell, sell" or "slash, slash,
slash" is the mantra applied not just to business but to the
privatisation of public services.

The recent global SlutWalks with their exuberant and clever slogans
such as "a dress is not a yes" and "sex is something you do together,
not to someone else", refocused attention on women's sexuality and the
need to highlight the continuing assaults around women's bodies. So
too did the international summits held by Endangered Species which is
fighting against the market-led and highly profitable machinations of
the beauty, style, celebrity, diet and cosmetic surgery industries.

The Dorries amendment attempts to situate women's sexuality in the
marketplace. To make it about numbers and vested interests. The only
interest we should have is to secure sexual equality, and we are still
too far away from that.

Oh, and let's not ignore the recent research in epigenetics. Maternal
wellbeing is of critical importance to the development of a baby in
the womb and to her or his health chances. And to that of the next
generation, as the eggs formed in the female foetus will be as old as
the woman who goes on to give birth. Creating the optimum conditions
for unconflicted pregnancies is another aspect of respect for the
woman and her family.

As a young therapist who once counselled pregnant women, I know the
poignancy and delicacy of this time spent with a woman – young or
approaching menopause – who finds herself pregnant. The demand on the
counsellor to be available to follow the women's concerns is paramount
and what makes the process so very useful.

The reframing of this issue to be about neutrality of services is a
red herring. We require services that are on the side of the
individual woman as she struggles to come to terms with this most
important decision.

China's village of the bachelors: no wives in sight in remote

Surplus of males caused by preference for sons means poor subsistence
farmers have no chance of finding a mate

Tania Branigan in Banzhushan, Hunan, Friday 2 September 2011 17.51 BST
Article history

Banzhushan in Hunan province. Photograph: Tania Branigan
He wants a wife, of course. But ask what kind of woman he seeks and
Duan Biansheng looks perplexed.

"I don't have any requirements at all," said the 35-year-old farmer.
"I would be satisfied with just a wife." His prospects of finding one,
he added, are "almost zero". There are dozens of single men in
Banzhushan village, perched high on a remote mountain peak in central
Hunan province – and not one unattached woman of marriageable age.

Tens of millions of men across China face a future as bachelors. They
are a source of pity, not envy, in a country where having children is
central to life.

Duan worries about growing old with no one to care for him. He chafes
at the unhelpful pressure to wed from his parents and neighbours. The
worst thing of all is the loneliness.

This is the perverse outcome of the country's longstanding preference
for sons, and its sudden modernisation. Traditionally, the family line
is passed via men. When a woman marries, she joins her husband's

Having a boy is a cultural and a pragmatic choice: you expect him to
continue your lineage and support you in old age. The result has long
been a surplus of men, because of female infanticide or excess female
deaths through neglect. But in the last 20 years, the problem has
exploded thanks to the spread of prenatal scans.

Sex-selective abortion is illegal, but is clearly widely practised.

The normal human birth ratio is 106 males for every 100 females. In
China, that has risen to 118 boys. That means 30 to 50 million men
will fail to find wives over the next two decades, according to Prof
Li Shuzhuo of the institute for population and development studies at
Xi'an Jiaotong University.

It is equivalent to every male in the UK dying a bachelor.

Experts have warned that these unmarried "bare branches" pose a threat
to social stability. Some suggest that excess men leads to more crime
and sexual violence; officials have warned of increased women
trafficking. Already, women are kidnapped and sold as wives, as
villagers in Banzhushan acknowledge.

Other commentators say that while some women are at greater risk, many
will benefit from better treatment due to their scarcity. "We can find
no evidence, as yet, for a destabilising influence," said Prof Therese
Hesketh of the UCL's institute of global health, who has co-authored a
paper on the impact of the imbalance. Crime is not higher in high sex
ratio areas, but it may be too early [to see the effects]. Women want
to marry men with money or prospects.

"This is not about men oppressing women – maybe the reverse. The
situation is good for women."

Poverty is as much to blame for "bachelor villages" as the skewed sex
ratio. Women can improve their status by "marrying up"; men are rarely
able to do so. Girls born in poor areas leave and outsiders stay away.

"Even though there are girls from this village, and we grew up
together, they know they can have a better life outside," said Duan.

In late summer, Banzhushan – "chestnut bamboo mountain" – is
mesmerisingly beautiful. Large brown butterflies flutter among the
tallow trees as you gaze down into deep valleys.

But it is simply too remote to be a good home, even to its 300
residents. They struggle to grow enough potatoes, maize and rice to
feed themselves. Selling wood helps, but incomes are just 300-400 yuan
(£30-40) a year, compared with 5,900 yuan for the average rural

Pieces of plastic and cardboard flap across the glass-free windows of
tatty brick houses. In winter, thick snows can cut off the village for
two weeks at a time. Conditions here are far better than 20 years ago.
The long, steep path to the village has been bulldozed into a road and
there is electricity, mobile phone and TV coverage. The government has
even built a two-storey community centre, shining white amid the pines
and bamboo.

But these developments have worsened the predicament for bachelors.

It is easier to learn about the outside world and easier to move away,
and local improvements have been far outpaced by the rapid changes

"Thirty or 40 years ago, girls from the valley were willing to marry
up here," said Jin Shixiu, 54.

"Everyone was poor and hungry. Transport was bad everywhere. Now the
roads down there are better but up here, it's still the same. Some
guys even met women outside, but when they came and saw our houses and
how poor we are, they just went away."

Jin longs for a grandchild – "everyone else is holding theirs" – but
says she does not dare to hope for one.

She encouraged her two sons to move to Shenzhen in search of money and
wives but her eldest, now 32, is still single.

Even when men become migrant workers, they lack the education to find
decent jobs, said the village's party secretary, Jin Yisong. "It is
still very hard to help these men find wives. I really don't know how
to do it," he said.

Duan's eldest brother took the rare step of marrying into another
village, moving away to join his bride's family.

The next eldest brother is working as a migrant labourer, but at 40
has yet to find a wife. His sister married a man from a richer, lower-
lying area.

Only Duan is left to look after his parents.

"Even if I could persuade them to move down, we wouldn't have money to
build a house or land to grow crops," he said. "After they pass away I
will be too old to get married. I don't think there's any hope for

But he does not blame himself, he said. There is little he can do.
"Even though there's pressure, and people gossip behind my back, I
don't see it as really aimed at me. There are tens of us in this

Home is where the heart is

It is a truth universally acknowledged in China that a single man must
be in want of a house.

"Everyone complains that the pressure is huge," said economist Zhang

"If you ask people what the important indicators are in the marriage
market, 75% say owning a house is the most important factor."

Zhang and co-author Shang-Jin Wei, of Columbia University, believe
China's skewed sex ratio is pushing up property prices and leading to
"competitive saving" as the parents of boys vie to buy better

Zhang, of the International Food Policy Research Institute in
Washington, cites the example of a farmer in Guizhou province who was
selling his blood to pay for a large new house.

It was, thought the man, the only chance of finding his son a bride.

"It is totally wasteful. Almost all the young men or women go out as
migrant workers," said Zhang.

"They build a two-storey or three-storey house, but the second floor
can be totally unfurnished.

"It is in a remote mountainous area which in a few decades will
probably be a national park.

"And there's no property market in rural villages because land is
communally owned.

"That was when I realised how strong an impact there was." said Zhang.

A controversial new decision from the country's top court – giving the
spouse who buys a house before marriage the right to keep it after
divorce – may help change attitudes.

Zhang said that in cities like Beijing, a growing number of couples
pool resources anyway: prices are too high for one set of parents to
cover the cost.
