A great deal of attention has been paid to women’s rights as it pertains to the workplace. There certainly is much to be said for that.
But what about a woman’s right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?
I was deeply disturbed, as no doubt millions were in recent weeks, to hear of the brutal gang rape of a girl in New Delhi around Christmas. This young mother was hospitalized and eventually died from her internal injuries. We linked a story about it on our advocacy site: Justice Sought In India Gendercide Case.
Then there was the story that broke this week regarding the latest statistics from Planned Parenthood, as record breaking numbers of abortions have been performed these past three years by this organization–the direct result of a surge Federal funding of abortion on demand. The numbers are staggering.
[quote type=”center”] In the US alone, 54.5 million babies have been aborted since 1973. Over half of these children who we never given the opportunity to see the light of day were girls. These young ladies were denied life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Can we see this as a violation of women’s rights? [/quote]
We’ve added a new page to our site under the statistics section: The War On Girls Is A Fact Of Life. In it we details a few facts that underscore our point that gendercide is a major global problem. We hope you will join us in speaking out against global gendercide.
