Protect Girls from Sex-Selective Abortion
According to UN statistics, there are 100 million girls missing around the world. Where have they gone? Many of them are left on the sides of roads, drowned, maimed and thrown in trash bins. But even more of them have been aborted.
The reason? They were girls, not boys.
Sex-selective abortion, also colloquially known as “Gendercide,” is a huge problem across Asia. A traditional preference for sons, combined with harsh population control measures, has led to the wholesale destruction of little girls. This destruction that has left places like China in demographic turmoil, as young men are beginning to outnumber young women by substantial margins.
With immigration, the problem is also beginning to spread to the United States, as well.
