Re: Abandoned Babies
While I personally
do not agree with many of the policies China has, political and otherwise,
before we judge them with contempt and disgust, and look down on them
and stereotype them as a society who abandons their own infants...
we better wake up and look in the mirror first.
page three of the Shanghai section of this Web site, where I mention some
of the locations abandoned Chinese infants are found, I felt compelled
to check out the search engines to see what was on the Web.
I did a search
on www.google.com for "abandoned babies", and here are just
a few of the many links to Web pages about infant abandonment right here
in the United States.
China has longheld traditions of male children being held in high
esteem, and a one child per family policy. What's our excuse?
