Rapper Omekongo Dibinga wrote and performed the following video to draw attention to the deadly fate awaiting many young girls.
The clip includes candid footage. Saggering figures are given and a mother relates how she has killed her own daughters and where she burried them.
Though the video focuses upon events in India and China, the destruction of young girls in their mother's wombs and shortly after birth is happening elsewhere.
A CBC report indicating that in utero girls are aborted right here in Canada prompted Conservative MP Mark Warawa (Langley) to present the following motion this past September 27, 2012 in the House of Commons: M-408: "That the House condemn discrimination against females occurring through sex-selective pregnancy termination."
Support for Motion 408 may be found here, including a petition you can sign and download in order to get others on board.
