Abortion cripples China
By Grant Swank

It's the health of an entire nation.

China may run out of females. That means a culture with nothing but males. Now it won't come to such an extreme; then again, it could.

That's what happens when mortals play God. That's what happens when mortals kill babies inside female bodies. That's what happens when mortals take charge on the dark side of the devil.

So China is faced with a real-life dilemma. Marriage hungry males can't find the brides they were hoping for. Their parents can't find their prospective daughters-in-law because somewhere along the line, baby girls in mothers' wombs were scalded or scraped or whatever out of the wombs.

The government demands one child per family. That means that if a mother becomes pregnant with a female, kill the female before she breathes. Can't betray the government, after all. Better a male than a not-wanted female. So the female babies-in-wombs have heaped high in the garbage pile up. Sad.

Therefore, the demons have certainly had their day, or it appears their night of sin nationwide. Evil pays with its own death salary check. Wickedness sanctioned by a politic eventually calls for accounts payable.

China is now considering putting into law that baby girls aborted will bring criminal consequences to those performing the killings. There must come about an evening out of females and males or male-female marriages are not going to continue in the offing. And that quite soon.

According to AP and FOX News: "Government figures show 117 boys are born in China for every 100 girls — a gap blamed largely on a policy limiting most couples to one child.

"In a society that values sons, many parents abort baby girls, hoping to try again for a boy. In some rural areas, the ratio is approaching 150 boys for every 100 girls, leading to fears of a huge surplus of men who will be unable to find mates in coming decades.

"China's top lawmakers want to make it a crime for doctors to detect an unborn baby's sex for non-medical reasons, in a bid to combat the abortion of female fetuses, government-run newspapers reported Sunday."

Sometimes Judgment Day comes early. So be it.
