2012-11-01

"When we saw my daughter, my wife saw the mark on her neck. We realized she was dead. We started crying, wailing. We couldn't see how he could just kill her.”

It's described as as 'gendercide.' The United Nations estimates that roughly 200 million girls are 'missing,' meaning they were aborted or abandoned, specifically because they were  female.
"Today India and China eliminate more girls than the number of girls who are born in America every year.”

This film titled 'It's a Girl' shows how many families do want their keep their babies, regardless of their gender. But in several cases this is easier said than done.

"They wanted to know if the children are girls or boys. They started torturing me to get an abortion done. What should I do to save my daughters?”

"There are people that work for the Birth Control Policy in the village. They found out about me.”

The movie began an international screening tour in September, which will continue throughout the year in the United States, Canada, Australia, Brussels and the U.K. The goal is to spread awareness and over time, not only change these laws, but mostly this part of the culture.
