The Consequences of Cultural Preferences for Male Babies, by Steven Mosher

Steven W. Mosher, the President of the Population Research Institute, spoke of a “Gendercide in Asia.”

According to Mosher, policies that limit the number of children a family are a contributing factor to the trend of sex-selective abortions; which Mosher called “a chilling reality in many countries in Asia.”

Mosher cited an estimate from the British medical journal The Lancet that as many as half a million female fetuses are aborted in India each year because of their gender. Mosher further claimed that “the problem extends beyond India” and is bringing about disastrous consequences.

Mosher: “A recent United Nations Population Fund report says at least 60 million girls are ‘missing’ in Asia because of sex-selective abortion, infanticide and neglect.”

Speech is given prior to the international premiere screening of the documentary “Demographic Bomb”, a sequel to the well-known “Demographic Winter”, during the World Congress of Families V (Amsterdam, august 2009).
