People somewhat familiar with the Bible know the story of King Herod. King Herod was so afraid of the baby Jesus that he ordered all boys under two slaughtered.
In California and other parts of the world it is just the opposite. Science is being used to identify and the kill baby girls. To be honest, some culture value male children over female children and now has a way to make sure.
One study found a dramatic increase in the difference in boys and girls in second, third and fourth born children of Indian birth in California. He estimated a gender selective rate of around 10%.
We have our own slaughter going on right here. The target is little girls. What would Herod think?
