“It’s a Girl” – The Three Deadliest Words

“It’s a Girl” – The Three Deadliest Words

Ann Bailey

“In India, China and many other parts of the world today, girls are killed, aborted and abandoned simply because they are girls. The United Nations estimates as many as 200 million girls  are missing in the world today because of this so-called “gendercide”.”  So states the website promoting a new documentary film:  “It’s a Girl!”  The Three Deadliest Words in the World.

It is hard for most to fathom that a mother would willing kill her baby girl, but then to realize that many mothers will do it repeatedly.   The tragic tale and explanation of sex-selection abortion is best told in a book by author/researcher Mira Hvistendahl:  “Unnatural Selection Choosing Boys over Girls, and The Consequences of a World Full of Men.”  Oddly enough Hvistendahl is not in the pro-life camp, but her work reveals the history and the complicity of government and agencies in this continuing tragedy.  You can read a review of this book here.

For now, watch the trailer of “It’s a Girl!”    The full documentary is slated to be released within the next few months.  We’ll let you know when that occurs.

    In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. These words by Dr Martin Luther King should have special significance to all Indians. We by keeping quiet about the evils of gender selection in India give comfort to the enemies of our culture and heritage. Please read the following articles and sign the petition to remove the evil of female infanticide.

    I had no idea that other people outside of the families were killing the children without their permission in addition to the mothers. At first I thought if they think that having a boy is what guarantees their family heritage will continue, they are in for a lot of hurt–and they should have learned this lesson already–some way to repay their mothers who thought they were worth saving. But then when I realized that the gender imbalance was against many families wills, I can’t help but wonder if there is some kind of conspiracy (for lack of a better word) that is out there not minding that this will double the problems of birth control forced on these countries. What do they hope to gain by it–do they know the problems this caused in other countries–are they really ignorant and afraid to admit mistakes? So sad.

    Opps, I’m looking pretty dumb right now, I just remembered that these countries have dowries–and that causes a lot of pressure. Too bad they don’t have wedding showers.
