Hey liberal women that want to defend a woman’s right to choose – How do you feel about this? Woman’s rights matter unless you’re in the womb.
Based on 2010 numbers from the United Nations Population Fund, China is “missing” about 24 million girls between the ages of 0 and 19. That’s over 14 percent of the female population in that age range.
Since the late 1970s, China has had a one child per family policy. Many families want that child to be a son. The increasing availability of prenatal ultrasounds and blood tests for gender makes it possible for parents to abort a female fetus if they want. The uneven ratio of boys to girls born in China suggests this is happening.
A similar dynamic is at play in India, and preliminary data suggest that as access to prenatal gender tests increases there, fewer girls are being born.
India’s percentage of girls missing at birth is lower than China’s at 5.6 percent of the female population between 0 and 19. But because India’s population is so large, India is missing 13 million girls out of its under-20-year-old female population.
Adding up the unborn girls, there are currently about 37 million fewer 0- to 19-year-old girls in India and China than the world average ratio would predict. To put that number in perspective, that’s about 2 million more than the entire population of Canada.
China and India aren’t the only countries that show this trend. They are just the largest.
