Gendercide… and not in the third world.

In the third world we see a rash of abortions based on the sex of the baby. Girls = abortion. After the babies are born and the couples find that they are a girl, many times the babies are given up for adoption, killed, or simply abandoned and left to die.

Countries make laws making selective sex abortions illegal, but the laws are nothing more than ways to say ‘Well, we’re really trying to have this not happen.’ and somehow have ourselves feel good about our efforts when in reality we know there is absolutely no way to stop it. Doctors don’t enforce it and its all too easy to lie about the ‘why’ behind the abortion. How? Get your ultrasound, find out its a girl, and then go to a Doctor and tell them you simply cannot afford the baby. Is anyone going to follow up and find out that you knew that it was a girl? Is anyone going to care? No on both counts.

‘We’ve done a great thing by legalizing and encouraging abortion – right?’ Wrong. And those who are suffering are, by and large, female babies. This says nothing of the 80% of pregnancies terminated as a result of a positive result for Down Syndrome.

Is this what feminists wanted?

In the third world, unwanted baby girls ‘disappear’. It’s called gendercide. And it’s happening in this country, too

    It is estimated that about 50 million girls have gone missing. They are aborted based on their sex. India has passed laws 18 years ago making it illegal for a medical practitioner to reveal the sex of an unborn baby. This law is rarely implemented because most of the government officials and judiciary are apathetic to this epidemic. This has caused the sex ratios to be extremely skewed in certain parts of India.
    Please read the following articles and the story of one lone woman, Dr Mitu Khurana, who has bought a case against the hospital, her husband and in- laws, who illegally found out the sex of her unborn twin baby girls and then tried to force her to have an abortion. She has been given the run around for four long years by the Indian judicial system.

    Can anyone give a voice to the 50 million girls that have been silenced forever? All Dr. Khurana is asking for is a chance to go before an unbiased judge and be heard. Can we all give a voice to the 50 million murdered and raise the question with Indian officials as to why they are silently witnessing the elimination of a whole generation. The silence of the Indian officials tell the story and makes us wonder if Dr. Khurana and the 50 million dead baby girls will ever see justice done.
    Please give those 50 million girls silenced forever, a voice. Please forward this to as many friends as possible.
