In recent years, there has been growing concern about the alarming trend of female infanticide across the globe, with reports indicating that millions of female births are missing due to prenatal sex selection. The latest research, published in the British Medical Journal Global Health in 2021, confirms that over 95% of these cases occurred in Communist China and India. But what about the United States?
While sex-selective abortions are banned in only seven states in America, pro-life members of Congress have been advocating for the PRENDA (Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act) since 2012. The bill, which aims to extend existing sex discrimination protection to females in the womb, was revised and reintroduced in January 2022, but has yet to pass both the House and the Senate.
Critics argue that the PRENDA act is unnecessary, claiming that sex-selective abortions are rare in America. But is this really the case? A 2012 investigation by pro-life organization Live Action revealed shocking evidence of sex-selective abortions being performed at various Planned Parenthood (Baby Killers) clinics, solely based on the “sex of the baby.”
These findings raise serious questions about the continued vulnerability of female fetuses in America and the urgent need for better protection of their rights. As a society, are we willing to let history repeat itself and ignore the growing threat of female infanticide in our own backyard? It is time for us to take a stand and ensure that every female life, regardless of race, religion, or social status, is valued and protected.
