China is the world’s most populated country with over 1.3 billion people, 637.5 million of which are women.
-For centuries, Chinese families without sons feared poverty and neglect. The male offspring represents continuity of lineage and protection in old age.
- The age-old bias towards boys, combined with the one-child policy imposed since 1980, has produced the largest, the highest, and the longest gender imbalance in the world. The male surplus rose to 120 boys for each 100 girls.
- Predictions for the next decade are that some 40 million Chinese men will be unable to find wives due to the “scarcity” of females as a result of kidnapping, trafficking and selective abortions.
-Women, who are up to 9 months pregnant with their second or third baby, may be taken to the hospital by regional population control officials for induced abortions.
GOD created man in his own image… male and female he created them. Gen 1:27
- God created man and women equal. Pray that God would reveal this truth to the Chinese culture.
-that China will stop its one-child policy
-that lives would be valued in new measure
