Birth of a Girl - Family Tragedy

This video is part of an article in The Atlantic magazine on gender preference in Pakistan.  It was made by two concerned women who wanted to see for themselves whether the dismal welcome a second girl in a family received as they were growing up was still the norm.

Read the article here.  IMO the video is far more powerful than the article at communicating the awful truth that women are vanishing from our world just as surely as Bengal tigers.  It's not about a country, a culture, the technology of ultrasounds and abortions, religions or laws.  It's about the fundamental devaluing of half the human race by the other half.  When women are worth keeping alive, they will be allowed to live.
