FRONT ROYAL, VA, July 24, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Steven Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute (PRI), says that America has a hidden problem of sex discrimination, but a form of discrimination that feminists refuse to address.
In PRI’s latest YouTube video, Mosher decries the practice, common in East and South Asian countries, of sex-selective abortion. According to the United Nations, this practice has already claimed the lives of over 100 million girls worldwide. The video goes on to cite a recent study published by the National Academy of Sciences, saying that many American groups, particularly those of Asian descent, have the same skewed birthrates as found in their country of origin. Many of the sexist customs and practices that have led to these skewed birthrates are being imported into the United States.
In China, India, and other Asian countries, there is a strong preference for boys, Mosher says. This combination of a preference for boys and modern technology – the ultrasound machine – has proven deadly for millions of baby girls. The video goes on to detail exactly how serious the problem is, and how it can only be explained by the selective abortion of baby girls.
“Where are the feminists when you need them?” asks Mosher. According to Mosher, the widespread slaughter of unborn girls has failed to raise concerns in the feminist community. American feminists, he alleges, are so wedded to abortion-on-demand that they are unwilling to oppose any abortion, however egregious. This is true, he says, even when the practice involves the killing of hundreds of millions of girls for the sole reason that they are girls.
“I challenge the National Organization of Women,” says Mosher, “and other feminist groups, to join us in the battle to ban this terrible form of sex discrimination that is killing so many unborn baby girls. Their continued silence only facilitates the killing.”
