The three deadliest words in the world: “It’s a Girl”
Vision to America ^ | 1/20/2012 | V2A

Posted on 01/20/2012 6:53:02 PM PST by risen_feenix

"It’s a girl, a film being released this year, documents the practice of killing unwanted baby girls in South Asia. The trailer’s most chilling scene is one with an Indian woman who, unable to contain her laughter, confesses to having killed eight infant daughters.

The statistics are sickening. The UN reports approximately 200 million girls in the world today are ‘missing’. India and China are said to eliminate more female infants than the number of girls born in the US each year..."

In that part of the world as well as most of the middle east, being female is not a good thing. Those who do live have little to live for. Not that I’m condoning infanticide, but maybe some of them these people think they’re committing mercy killings.

I have two girls, now ages 19 and 15. Watching the trailer for “It’s a Girl” broke my heart. I just can’t fathom that kind of senseless and heartless mentality.

Moms and Dads, give your kids a big hug today.

For India and China, and any other nations that condone this practice, we should allow no immigration to the US, or at a minimum only immigration of equal numbers of male and females in similar age groups.

Many men of these nations will absolutely try to leave for nations where they are more likely to find mates, thus transferring the male/female imbalance to other nations.

Both of my kids were girls. I am blessed to have them.

My brother only had boys.

After watching our sisters care for our aged and dying parents, my brother commented that I got the better deal. I'll have my girls to care for me at the end. My brother is just hoping for a decent daughter-in-law.

I can imagine the mind-set of people that kill children. All cultures are NOT equal.

I wouldn’t be able to watch the movie.. hits too close to home. We have one adopted Chinese daughter and she is just a joy and blessing to us. She was one of the “lucky” ones. Her bio parents took a great risk and placed her in a location where she was found. I will admit that there are times when I look at her beautiful, angelic face and wonder... how many of her sisters were left behind or buried? How many more little girls were smothered in buckets of white ash simply because they were born a girl? Just too sad for me.

I did get to give my youngest a hug today. She stopped by to pick up a book. :)

The other one is 2K miles away, so hugs are less frequent. :(.

But grandbabies are plenty, smart and cute. So I get a net win.

Sorry guys, but I have to sit this one out. Three of my five kids are daughters. I don’t want to watch the trailer, even. But I completely agree that the mere idea is evil and abhorrent, much less the practice of infanticide such as this.

That’s the problem. The boys will want girls, but if there are not enough girls, the competition becomes intense and the aggression level rises enormously. A society with too many males is virtually always a society on its way to war...

One of the many problems with Islam is that polygamy reduces the number of available females per male, since a smaller number of more powerful, richer or older males have taken a disproportionate number of the females in any given age bracket. Many Muslim men know that they will never marry and have children because they simply don’t have the status and power to get one of the few available women. This encourages homosexuality in the short term, but overall leads to despair and anger. It’s also one of the things that makes them so willing to run out and kill themselves while attempting to kill the evil Westerners who don’t live by their bizarre laws.

How many babies have we aborted in the US? Boys and girls. We don't seem to have a preference, any baby will do.

We have no room to talk. We have our own holocaust.

There’s a difference, albeit small, between aborting a fetus, and strangling a newborn.

Yes, we have an abortion problem in this country, but thank goodness we don’t have any form of infanticide problem.

All women should get on their knees and give thanks to God and Judeo/Christian Ethics. Christianity gave respect and honor to women by promoting Mary as the Mother of God and giving her a special place of honor.

Christianity got rid of slavery and elevated everyone to a place of dignity and worth-—it is responsible for Common Law—Individual Rights and the right to vote, etc.

The Romance era and chivalry—all because of Christianity-—the respect is being destroyed by Marxist/feminist/homosexual/agendas which want all people to be like an ant colony—egalitarianism-—no special anything—reduce them to copulating, sterile animals—no teleological ends—no Design by God.

All other cultures STINK when it comes to respecting women and giving them dignity and honor. Homosexual cultures are the worst (Afghanistan, Samurai/Japan).—but the Marxists/feminists are trying to destroy that respect -—which only comes from being a child of God.

Really?

BTW, looking at the numbers, the US aborts about EIGHT times more humans than India, per capita.

I have a daughter and two grand daughters. They are the joy of my life. I live in North Dakota. They live in Honolulu. I spent the money I should have saved and flew there over Christmas, it was a week of complete joy, even if it was too hot there. These days will never be forgotten between me and my oldest grandchild.

Someday the death of all the girls will haunt them

“BTW, looking at the numbers, the US aborts about EIGHT times more humans than India, per capita.”

Again, I’m guessing the infanticide, the murdering of birthed children, is not included in that number.

And post all the drawings you like, there’s a difference in the person who has a doctor abort their fetus, and the mother that strangles a newborn, or leaves it out in the cold to die.

The most intriguing line of the story is, “In India women who fail to produce sons are beaten, raped or killed so that men can remarry in the hope of procuring a more productive wife.”

If I remember correctly from Biology class, the male sperm determines the sex of the child. So these uneducated morons are killing the wrong person. The man is the one to blame for female offspring. Now as a male having said that, I could not fathom life without my two wonderful daughters.

Is there really a difference or is just less repulsive to you if a doctor kills the baby in the womb?

Strangling vs. the mother hiring a contract killer to chop up the baby inside the womb? You see a lot of difference in the two?

I have one daughter, 15, and she is currently breaking my heart with her decisions. Regardless, I believe that somehow we will come through it (not unscathed, unfortunately) and I would never ever use even my current bad situation to condemn having children or even just daughters. All children are special. NEVER stop reassuring them that you love them in both words and deeds. In one moment they can misinterpret something and go completely off the rails.

Since they value girls so much less, I bet a fairly high percent are, and probably have always been male. And probably the same for India.

That male/female imbalance will absolutely be partially transferred to all Western nations unless our idiot leaders get their heads out of the PC rear ends fairly soon.

When I was visiting a Muslim friend who had had her first child, she was busy showing off her baby boy. I asked her what her husband thought of the baby. “It’s a boy, so he’s happy. And I’m relieved. Now if the rest are girls, it doesn’t matter, because I’ve had a son.”
Turns out she was one of four girls and had one brother. Having had one son, there wouldn’t be pressure to have babies until there was a boy or abuse for failure to produce a son, as her mother had faced.

The preference for sons is not limited to India, China, or Muslim countries.

My grandmother was born in Europe and immigrated to the US before WWI. She was one of 7 sisters--the 8th child in the family was the first boy. Her parents kept having children until they had a son. All of the girls survived to adulthood.

I have one daughter, 15, and she is currently breaking my heart with her decisions.

I had my own awful experience with our daughter. From about 14 till she turned 18, she was my heartbreak. She didn't follow our rules, she snuck out at night, constantly ditched school, had questionable "friends". I can't tell you how many nights I drove up and down the neighborhood streets looking for her, or crying myself to sleep because I had no idea where she was. It even got to the point where I was ready to throw her out of the house because I couldn't deal with it any more. We prayed and prayed asking for strength for us and wisdom for her.

I don't recommend this, but what ended up waking her up was she got pregnant. We sat and talked for hours and I asked her if she wanted her baby around those people she hung out with. Without batting an eye, she said "NO" and that was that. She became the person we knew she could be. She married the father (who actually is a really good guy - husband and father), is a wonderful mother to our beautiful granddaughter and that horrible part of her teenage years is just a bad memory.

You just have to hang in there, for her. Even if you don't think she's paying attention, she hears what you say and one day she will appreciate your not giving up on her.

No offense but the UN is the most hypocritical organization whne it comes to being shocked at something like this.

The UN promotes population control and abortion in countries it believes have too many people. For them to care why people are aborting is ridiculous.

These same people tell us that abortion doesn’t kill a person, so the gender of the fetus should not be regarded by them as a person in the first place. Hardly consistent. Either abortion kills a person or it doesn’t. You can’t talk about the dead fetus as a person if you don’t consider it a person. These liberal knobs want to have it both ways when it suits them. Don’t accept their premise.

It’s odd that in third world countries the preference has always been to have a male child, yet in the US it seems that females are the most preferred gender.

Men are emasculated and every day you read of young boys brought up as girls.

Just interesting.

It wasn't irrational to want sons to continue the family and work the family's landholdings--daughters would marry into other families. Nowadays in the more developed countries, most people are not peasants so the traditional attitudes are disconnected from practical realities but they persist.

Confucian China was always very patriarchal (plus sons were needed to ensure that the rites of ancestor worship would be performed). The so-called Proto-Indo-Europeans (c. 4500 B.C.) were very patriarchal and warlike and the same traits can be found in many of their descendants spread from India to Europe--the Aryan invaders of India, the Persians, the Greeks, the Romans, the early Germans, the Vikings, etc.

Modern feminists denounce the "patriarchy" they perceive in America but the situation in America even before the rise of the new feminist movement was pretty mild compared to most societies in human history.
