"A World Bank chart on cumulative sex ratios at birth shows a deceptively steady closing of the gap between male and female births in Montenegro through 2019. But a UN Population Fund (UNFPA) table based on official Montenegrin data showed a gap of nearly 110 boys to 100 girls in 2019, as bad as it's been for decades.

"The Women's Rights Center, an NGO in Podgorica that has fought for tighter enforcement to stop what are known as sex-selective abortions, called the nonexistent 'right' Ivanovic was describing a violation of the constitution and antidiscrimination laws. 'A member of the Montenegrin parliament should know that,' it said" (Para 8). "More recently, a slew of sociological, anthropological, and ethnographic studies suggest that Montenegro remains stubbornly susceptible to sex-selective abortion. Diana Kiscenko, a lecturer in social anthropology at Riga Stradins University, published an ethnographic study in April on a Montenegrin 'son preference and inheritance practices' in the country.

'However, I would not claim that it is the only reason that one may terminate a pregnancy'" (Para 52). "'I think that the situation in Montenegro is changing,' Zenovich says.
