I typically quote another writer on the web for this post, but I wanted to share something a bit different today. I don't know if you're aware of it, but many countries in the world are in the midst of what is called the "daughter deficit". Couples, for cultural reasons, prefer boys, and will often abort female babies and even kill daughters after birth.
There is a new film project called "It's a Girl!" that addresses this issue. I'll warn you, the trailer is a bit tough to watch, but knowledge is power.
