We have known for some time about China’s one child coverage and the brutal effects of that legislation for unborn women as nicely as living ladies and young ladies. Now, Rep. Chris Smith of New Jersey has alerted us to the implications of sexual intercourse-selection abortion and woman infanticide in India.
In his commentary on “The Missing Girls of India” in the Washington Occasions on September sixteen, 2013, Rep. Smith informs us that India has a lopsided ratio of boys who are born to the variety of ladies born (126 boys for every single one hundred women). The ensuing lack of females has led to improved trafficking in females, bride-promoting, prostitution, little one brides and even brothers sharing a woman.
It is time to link the dots! The killing of ladies in the womb and infanticide of child ladies in India has led to a scarcity in the feminine populace. That lack of girls, as Rep. Smith said, is resulting in younger ladies and ladies becoming trafficked, prostituted, sold, and shared to satisfy India’s disproportionately male population.
Who will defend the defenseless in the womb who are chosen for death simply because they are girls? And, who will protect the dwelling ladies who are becoming pressured into unimaginable and horrific circumstances, clearly not of their choosing, because they lived and can be utilised? Who will talk up for the dignity, regard and intrinsic value of every woman?
