A Genocide of Baby Girls

From Life Site:
A government report shows India has an alarming imbalanced ratio of boys to girls: For every 100 females born in India, there are 107.6 males birthed.  The natural average is 105 to 100. Girls are “notionally...unwanted,” India’s Economic Survey 2017-18 states.  Boys traditionally ensure parental economic care, while girls traditionally leave the family and cost a dowry.  

“Couples’ tendency to keep trying until a boy is born has led to the birth of as many as 21 million...unwanted...girls,” CNN reported on the matter. “The preference for boys and the availability of sex-selective operations, although illegal in India, means there’s a gender gap of as many as 63 million girls, classified in the report as ‘missing.’" As LifeSiteNews has reported, “missing,” like “sex selection operations” are euphemisms for abortion. Targetting females for abortion is rampant across the nation, even though it is technically illegal.

Human Life International (HLI) India told LifeSiteNews that sex-selection abortion targetting girls is "prevalent.” HLI’s Milagres Pereira, who lives in India, shared an all-too-common scenario.  “A couple of miles away from my place a well educated and working couple killed three babies in a womb when they discovered they were girls,” he told LifeSiteNews via email. “The slogan ‘Pre-Natal Sex Scanning is a Crime’ is all over government hospitals with huge fines and imprisonment notices, but they do not scare anyone because our nation has been deeply rooted in abortion since its legalization in 1971.”

Female infanticide is a growing practice in the country as well. “Even now there are places where untrained village mid-wives have been known to put a spoonful of un-husked rice into the (newborn’s) throat, so the soaked rice expands and chokes the child to death,” Pereira related.  “As horrible as it may sound, this is the truth.  There are worse (means of sex selection) than what CNN has reported.” (Read more.)
 Meanwhile, in the Land of the Free, there is a form of slavery worse than death. From Zero Hedge:
 According to USA Today, adults purchase children for sex at least 2.5 million times a year in the United States. Who buys a child for sex? Otherwise ordinary men from all walks of life.They could be your co-worker, doctor, pastor or spouse,” writes journalist Tim Swarens, who spent more than a year investigating the sex trade in America. In Georgia alone, it is estimated that 7,200 men (half of them in their 30s) seek to purchase sex with adolescent girls each month, averaging roughly 300 a day.

On average, a child might be raped by 6,000 men during a five-year period of servitude. It is estimated that at least 100,000 children—girls and boys—are bought and sold for sex in the U.S. every year, with as many as 300,000 children in danger of being trafficked each year. Some of these children are forcefully abducted, others are runaways, and still others are sold into the system by relatives and acquaintances. “Human trafficking—the commercial sexual exploitation of American children and women, via the Internet, strip clubs, escort services, or street prostitution—is on its way to becoming one of the worst crimes in the U.S.,” said prosecutor Krishna Patel.

This is not a problem found only in big cities. It’s happening everywhere, right under our noses, in suburbs, cities and towns across the nation. As Ernie Allen of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children points out, “The only way not to find this in any American city is simply not to look for it.” It is estimated that there are 100,000 to 150,000 under-aged child sex workers in the U.S. Every year, the girls being bought and sold gets younger and younger. Social media makes it all too easy for young people to be preyed upon by sexual predators. (Read more.)
