In This Brave New World, 160 Million Girls Are ‘Missing’

A Commentary By Debra J. Saunders
Sunday, July 31, 2011

The world is becoming unbalanced. In pockets across the globe, women are giving birth to too many boys. In China, the sex ratio is 121 boys to 100 girls. In India, it’s 112-to-100. Sex selection also is a force in the Balkans, Armenia and Georgia. In her eye-opening book, “Unnatural Selection: Choosing Boys Over Girls, and the Consequences of a World Full of Men,” journalist Mara Hvistendahl estimates that ultrasound and abortion have “claimed over 160 million potential women and girls — in Asia alone.” That’s more than the entire female population of the United States.

  1. I wonder if future generations of women will continue to outlive their male counterparts at the same rate. Typically, more male babies are born, but die at a greater pace than females so that by the age of 20, proportions are about even. http://transgenerational.org/aging/demographics.htm

    If the males are fighting for the fewer available females through the teens and early twenties, it would seem that the testosterone overload will drive up violent crime and put the females in a position to “move on” to men who are more competitive both in what they offer and in the way they treat their women. As a commodity grows scarce, the price goes up and the value does as well. Population Geographers should keep a close study on how the next generation, with this XY overload fares.

    As for those “unmarryable” males (as Charles Krauthammer called them on Fox today,0 where will they channel their energy and interest. As the gay lifestyle gains acceptance, this will also be a factor, but will the population this policy produces be one that is equipped with true Survival instincts to advance the race?
