Selective abortions in the Yezidi community

Today, the Cultural Center of the Caucasus Yezidis will talk about what the Yezidi community is silent about, namely in this video we will touch on the topic of selective abortions.

The topic of abortion in different cultures is a kind of taboo for discussion and publicity. Yezidis are no exception either. Until now, for many Yazidi parents, the gender of their child plays an important role, there are several so-called "logical" reasons for this: a girl who is supposedly easier to raise, or a boy who will become a "continuer of the family" and "protector". Sometimes this desire is so strong that parents are ready to give up the unborn child simply because he turned out to be the "wrong" sex. Abortion in this case is called "selective", because in it parents are not satisfied with the fact of pregnancy itself, namely, the characteristics of a particular embryo.
