Gendercide

sofiastyles.com

In our TLC bible study, Lioness Arising, Lisa Bevere makes a statement that 50 million females are missing off the face of the planet. The number struck me. Have you ever considered that women have vanished, been aborted, killed, or set aside, never to be seen or heard from again? Lisa then makes the statement that she isn’t even talking about sex-trafficking.

I began to google gendercide and began to read. Today I wanted share an article with you. As you read it, begin to think about where you are in the world and what you can do about it? What if your role is to make people aware that it happens? As Lisa Bevere states, we think this is an “over there” problem but what we allow over there eventually comes here.

  1. The moment I read what you had to say I thought of the Clackamas Town Mall here in Portland. It’s weird to say but it has one of the highest rates of abductions of adolescent girls in the Northwest because it’s right on the I-5 corridor and the authorities have really tried to take steps to crack down on it. The problem is parents use the mall as a babysitter sometimes for their 11-14 year olds never thinking something like this might happen.

    Portland is number one in the nation for the sex trafficking trade. It’s awful and scary. The best way to make it safe for our kids is to supervise them. So I make my job to warn people with kids in general not to let them out of their sight in these types of places, though I’m sure few take me seriously.

    It’s sad this stuff happens at all, but I believe it’s only going to get worse before Jesus comes again. Isn’t that a scary thought!

  2. I had read this a couple of weeks ago, and honestly, I couldn’t believe it has gone unnoticed. How can I, as a woman, sleep at night knowing somewhere in the world I am so devalued to the point that extinction is the option. And, how can some men, who are birth by women and nurtured by them easily go about killing them. I shake my head with disbelief. Something needs to be done! We need to take action! I need to make a difference!

  3. It is estimated that about 50 million girls have gone missing. They are aborted based on their sex. India has passed laws 18 years ago making it illegal for a medical practitioner to reveal the sex of an unborn baby. This law is rarely implemented because most of the government officials and judiciary are apathetic to this epidemic. This has caused the sex ratios to be extremely skewed in certain parts of India. Please read the following articles and the story of one lone woman, Dr Mitu Khurana, who has bought a case against the hospital, her husband and in- laws, who illegally found out the sex of her unborn twin baby girls and then tried to force her to have an abortion. She has been given the run around for four long years by the Indian judicial system.

    Can anyone give a voice to the 50 million girls that have been silenced forever? All Dr. Khurana is asking for is a chance to go before an unbiased judge and be heard. Can we all give a voice to the 50 million murdered and raise the question with Indian officials as to why they are silently witnessing the elimination of a whole generation. The silence of the Indian officials tell the story and makes us wonder if Dr. Khurana and the 50 million dead baby girls will ever see justice done. Please give those 50 million girls silenced forever, a voice. Please forward this to as many friends as possible.

    • shared her story on my Facebook timeline. Won’t help much but it’s something

    • Thanks so much for the information. I’ve been very moved by Dr. Khurana’s story for some time now, it’s just incredible for a Western mind to try and grasp. I think I will take your links and write some more about this problem. We need to give it as much voice as possible. I am truly grateful!
