A tragic and heart breaking report in The Economist magazine in March. Full article from The Economist here.
Even though it’s been known for years now, the Western media has been avoiding coverage of the horror. But thanks to The Economist stunning cover story,“Gendercide — What Happened to 100 Million Baby Girls?” the story has been brought to light by one of the most respected business magazines in the world.
In many nations of the world, Like China and India there is an all-out war on baby girls. In 1990, economist Amartya Sen estimated that 100 million baby girls were missing, sacrificed by parents who desired a son. Two decades later, multiple millions of missing baby girls must be added to that total, victims of abortion, infanticide, or fatal neglect.
The murder of girls is especially common in China and northern India, where a preference for sons produces a situation that is nothing less than critical for baby girls.
China’s one child per family, and preference for boys, has lead to a side effect they did not see coming, a Human Trafficking Boom. The Economist states; “China alone stands to have as many unmarried young as the entire population of young men in America. In any country rootless young males spell trouble; in Asian societies, where marriage and children are the recognized routes into society, single men are almost like outlaws. Crime rates, bride trafficking, sexual violence, even female suicide rates are all rising and will rise further as the lopsided generations reach their maturity.”
We have multiple issues here:
1. The genocide of girls, via abortion, murdered after birth, neglected unto death.
2. Young girls sold to human trafficking as a way to get rid of unwanted girl child.
3. Young girls being taking (kidnapped, bought, tricked though deception, est.) from other nation by traffickers and brought in to fill the shortage of girls caused by the genocide of girls the last 20 years.
I applaud The Economist for writing this article, saying what everyone else has been hiding their faces from: “It is no exaggeration to call this gendercide. Women are missing in their millions–aborted, killed, neglected to death.” Please read the article but don’t just let be head knowledge, let it be a call to action for you, stand up for the millions of girls that are not only being gendercide, but that are being Trafficked into the sex slave market as well.
