“Gendercide is gender-selective mass killing. The term was first used by Mary Anne Warren in her 1985 book, Gendercide: The Implications of Sex Selection. Warren drew “an analogy between the concept of genocide” and what she called “gendercide.” Citing the Oxford English Dictionary definition of genocide as “the deliberate extermination of a race of people…” GENDERCIDE WATCH
“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(1) are missing in the world today because of this so-called “gendercide”.
Girls who survive infancy are often subject to neglect, and many grow up to face extreme violence and even death at the hands of their own husbands or other family members.” IT’S A GIRL
“…the destruction of baby girls is a product of three forces: the ancient preference for sons; a modern desire for smaller families; and ultrasound scanning and other technologies that identify the sex of a fetus… Baby girls are thus victims of a malign combination of ancient prejudice and modern preferences for small families.” THE ECONOMIST March 4th 2010
It seems that the sanctity of life on this planet traversing the cosmos is at low tide. To terminate a fetus or a baby because it is a certain gender (in most cases a girl) is abhorrent.
We in the West point our self-righteous finger at the Asian continent about their reproductive policies and their enforcement of those polices. While we Westerners have societies where women and female children are treated like third class chattel.
Gendercide is not a geopolitical problem. It’s a global problem which touches every man, woman and child.
When you add war to the mix of troubles on this earth, you have a lethal mixture where young men become cannon fodder and girls and women become victims of the aggressors. Life becomes a barren waste with so much blood and misery poured out like an oblation to some ancient war deity which demanded human sacrifice.
The history of our world is written in blood, especially the blood of the innocent. No one asks to be born, but the life one lives after birth has a direct bearing on those with whom the person comes into contact.
It seems that the legacy of earth is written without a moral compass. What is right or what is wrong becomes a matter of state policy or individual determination based on the circumstances of the moment.
If humans are to survive, then radical changes must happen. The current path of humanity is destined for extinction. The pillage of life must stop.
Our history as a planet is soaked in bloody rags of misery and greed. All the fine tailored garments of life can not cover the sad facts of our wanton disregard for the locus of creation. Human life was meant to be different on this world.
Perhaps, the story of Genesis 4 about two brothers holds a lesson. The blood of the innocent cry out from the ground for justice. Who will hear their cry on earth?
It is time to remember our roots in the Ceiba tree of life. We are all interconnected since we are brothers and sisters of the same origin. Regardless of your belief about origins, we share the same ancestry, the same first parents, the same genome and this orb we call earth.
What you do today to help those innocents to survive and to grow will be the only legacy worth remembering after you have returned to the dust of the cosmos. However, the cry of the innocents will not cease until life is valued beyond its current worthlessness and justice is equalized for all people.

THE THREE DEADLIEST WORDS IN THE WORLD: IT’S A GIRL
JOURNAL OF MEDICAL ETHICS: After Birth Abortion—Why Should The Baby Live
The Shocking Truth Behind Britain’s Gendercide Scandal By BRAD MACDONALD
“Britain is now the abortion capital of Europe, with 10,000 foreigners visiting each year to terminate a pregnancy. Since 2002, more than 35,000 girls under the age of 16 have had an abortion. In 2010, more than a quarter of abortions among girls under 25 were repeat procedures. Since the 1967 Abortion Act, there’s been a 3,700 percent increase in abortions in Britain. Abortion is treated as a form of contraception, as quick, simple and, most notably, as socially and morally acceptable as popping a pill.
The gendercide under way in Britain is not simply a result of the rejection of law and morality by a few individuals, be it the mother seeking the termination of her baby or the doctor performing the procedure. Ultimately, it’s the result of a government, a culture, an entire nation, caught in the grip of moral anarchy—and fast descending into total lawlessness.”
