85 Million Missing Women in Asia

The Feminists have the nerve to pretend that to be pro-woman one must be pro-abortion . . .

"The United Nations estimated Monday that India and China are "missing" about 85 million women who died from discriminatory health care and neglect or who were never born at all.

In a major report on gender equality, the UN Development Programme (UNDP) found that Asia had the highest male-female sex ratio at birth in the world, with 119 boys born for every 100 girls.

This far exceeded the global world average of 107 boys for every 100 girls.

"Females cannot take survival for granted," the report said. "Sex-selective abortion, infanticide, and death from health and nutritional neglect in Asia have left 96 million missing women ... and the numbers seem to be increasing in absolute terms," it added.

The regional figure was skewed by enormous birth gender disparities in China and India, which each accounted for about 42.6 million of the report's "missing" figure."

If abortion was so great for women it wouldn't make so many of them just disappear from the face of the earth, would it?

This may be one of two or three most of the most important stories of this century (along with the islamification of Europe). What will the Chinese do to compensate? War is a common way to overcome a problem like this.

Peter,
Yup. You are right about that. Building an empire is the time-honored method of channeling that testosterone away from rebellion and toward "constructive" functions.

Craig:

I read a story a couple years ago about a North Korean woman who was abducted as a wife in China. But there is this document: An absence of choice: The sexual exploitation of North Korean women in China. I can't vouch for the reliability of it, but abduction appears to be one current solution to the one-child policy--it reminds me of the Benjaminite solution(Judges 21.20).
