Gendercide Comes to North America

The National Catholic Register recently reported on the Economist’s gendercide article. The Register points out that the killing of baby girls is not limited to Asian countries, but has come to Canada and the United States.

Most populations can naturally expect a balance of slightly more boys born than girls, a range of about “103 to 105 baby boys for every 100 baby girls,” according to known demographer Nicholas Eberstadt.

In Canada, some communities with large Asian populations are showing 116 to 109 baby boys born for every 100 girls. In the United States similar numbers are seen among Korean, Chinese and Indian immigrants.

The Register goes on to discuss some of the dilemmas that doctors are facing today.
