 From USA Today:

Trafficking in women and children is a big problem in China, where traditional preference for male heirs and a strict one-child policy has driven a thriving market in baby boys, who fetch a considerably higher price than girls. Girls and women also are abducted and used as laborers or as brides for unwed sons.

I don't mean to joke about something so horrific, because it really, really is (horrific). But I had to post this here!

Here is the full article: http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/story/2012-03-10/china-rescues-abucted-women-children/53470464/1?csp=34news

I'm in no way "disappointed" that I have sons, I just want the chance to raise a daughter as well. Happy Wink

Want to try for a Baby Bear Girl early next year! Pray

That is horrible, but yes, lucky for the boys.

 Even it's lucky for boys unlike here, still it's horrible for girls..they needs equal treatment as well.

Its sad for the women and girls but I also think it is sad for the boys (look at the picture of that boy who is chained to a lamppost!) Mothers of boys constantly have to worry that someone might kidnapp their sons. And young men don't find wives because of the lack of young women. I think its just sad for everyone involved Sad
