A World Full of Men?

Think 1 Comment on A World Full of Men? 105

Hour 2: How will the developing-world pressure to have a male child and the rising economic status of these developing countries jeopardize the gender balance of society in the years to come? We’ll talk this hour with Mara Hvistendahl, a Beijing-based correspondent for Science and author of the new book “Unnatural Selection: Choosing Boys Over Girls, and the Consequences of a World Full of Men” (PublicAffairs, 2011).

    Very intersting and important topic.  I really enjoyed Krys’ probing questions and Mara’s honest responses.  When a culture begins to dabble in what is clearly the providence of God, the consequences or unintended consequences are rarely positive.  Population control via abortion is reprehensible and should not be encouraged or legal.   I do not understand our culture’s ability to justify abortion when it is the termination of human life.  To listen to two highly educated, thoughtful women who are pro choice talk about this subject was fascinating and should cause many to THINK.
