The most horrific mass-slaughter of women in world history is going on right now courtesy of the abortion industry. Over 160 million unborn babies have been killed for the "crime" of being a girl. And Western racist liberal elites are complicit in this brutality.

Review - Unnatural Selection, by Mara Hvistendahl

quote: Steven Mosher (Amazon), an anthropology student in Stanford University’s PhD program, who was later expelled by the University, ostensibly due to pressure from the Chinese, and who later went on to become a strong proponent for chipping away at abortion rights and saw banning pre-natal sex-based abortions as an incremental step towards an outright ban on abortions, documented coercive methods on display in an agricultural commune in the Guangdong province in China in 1981, where he heard a pregnant woman being told by He Kaifeng, a commune cadre and Communist Party member, "You are here because you have to ‘think clear’ about birth control, and you will remain here until you do."

Such coercive methods did not go unrewarded by the international community. "In September 1983 the organization (United Nations Population Fund - UNFPA) jointly awarded Qian Xinzhong, the former People’s Liberation Army general charged with administering the one-child policy, and Indira Gandhi, who had overseen both India’s mass sterilizations and the AIIMS sex selection experiments in the 1970s, with the first United Nations Population Award."

Check out the NYT article:

160 Million and Counting

quote: The spread of sex-selective abortion is often framed as a simple case of modern science being abused by patriarchal, misogynistic cultures. Patriarchy is certainly part of the story, but as Hvistendahl points out, the reality is more complicated — and more depressing.

Thus far, female empowerment often seems to have led to more sex selection, not less. In many communities, she writes, “women use their increased autonomy to select for sons,” because male offspring bring higher social status. In countries like India, sex selection began in “the urban, well-educated stratum of society,” before spreading down the income ladder.

Moreover, Western governments and philanthropic institutions have their fingerprints all over the story of the world’s missing women.

From the 1950s onward, Asian countries that legalized and then promoted abortion did so with vocal, deep-pocketed American support. Digging into the archives of groups like the Rockefeller Foundation and the International Planned Parenthood Federation, Hvistendahl depicts an unlikely alliance between Republican cold warriors worried that population growth would fuel the spread of Communism and left-wing scientists and activists who believed that abortion was necessary for both “the needs of women” and “the future prosperity — or maybe survival — of mankind,” as the Planned Parenthood federation’s medical director put it in 1976.

For many of these antipopulation campaigners, sex selection was a feature rather than a bug, since a society with fewer girls was guaranteed to reproduce itself at lower rates.

Hvistendahl’s book is filled with unsettling scenes, from abandoned female fetuses littering an Indian hospital to the signs in Chinese villages at the height of the one-child policy’s enforcement. (“You can beat it out! You can make it fall out! You can abort it! But you cannot give birth to it!”) The most disturbing passages, though, are the ones that depict self-consciously progressive Westerners persuading themselves that fewer girls might be exactly what the teeming societies of the third world needed.

WSJ article:

The War Against Girls

quote: She spends a devastating chapter talking with Paul Ehrlich, the man who mainstreamed overpopulation hysteria in 1968 with "The Population Bomb"—and who still seems to think that getting rid of girls is a capital idea (in part because it will keep families from having more and more children until they get a boy).

quote: Ms. Hvistendahl also dredges up plenty of unpleasant documents from Western actors like the Ford Foundation, the United Nations and Planned Parenthood, showing how they pushed sex-selective abortion as a means of controlling population growth.

quote:
The following year another Planned Parenthood official celebrated China's coercive methods of family planning, noting that "persuasion and motivation [are] very effective in a society in which social sanctions can be applied against those who fail to cooperate in the construction of the socialist state." As early as 1969, the Population Council's Sheldon Segal was publicly proclaiming the benefits of sex-selective abortion as a means of combating the "population bomb" in the East. Overall Ms. Hvistendahl paints a detailed picture of Western Malthusians pushing a set of terrible policy prescriptions in an effort to road-test solutions to a problem that never actually manifested itself.

The problem, of course, is not abortion but sexism. Tell your extremists to give up the second and campaign for equality worldwide, with the right of women to control their own bodies, free of the bullyboys' rants.
How about equality without the abortion industry ripping apart women and babies?

Do you think abortion for the purpose of sex selection should be legal? Yes or no? You know the U.S. is the only developed country that doesn't restrict sex-selection abortion.

Do you acknowledge the United Nations and Planned Parenthood pushed sex-selective abortion?

Do you acknowledge the abortion industry profits off the mass murder of unborn baby girls?

Do you admit the abortion industry abets sexists?

In another few decades, we'll have the technology to safely select the gender of a fetus without abortions. I envision few problems with this in most developed countries, but the ramifications in India and China could be dire.

And in many of the countries you mention girl babies are being murdered at birth or soon after birth, so when do you want them killed? I would prefer earlier.

This problem is also about culture and overpopulation...the one child policy came about to try and stem the tide of overpopulation. Culturally, its the male child who grows up and STAYS with his family (his new wife would come to his family) and take care of his parents...so people who have a girl will have no one to take care of them in their old age.

There is another problem emerging as well..there is now a shortage of women which mean many men cannot get a wife and have a child at all. This is leading to KIDNAPPING women and forcing them to be a wife and part of the family.

Obviously China has to find a new way to address this cultural problem while also still trying to address population control.
