de Lora on Disability-Selective Abortion and the CRPD

Over at Harvard Law's new Bill of Health blog, Spanish law professor Pablo de Lora has this interesting post on efforts by disability rights groups in Spain to use the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities to justify a ban on disability-selective abortion.  I am not persuaded by de Lora's discrimination analysis, and my sense is that the reaction of most American readers to the issue will be driven by their views of abortion in general.  But the post is very much worth a read.
