A campaign to improve the lives of girls in developing countries has the title “Because I am a girl”. There are television advertisements, bus shelter advertisements and other forms of media messaging. The website explains that by educating, nourishing,valuing and protecting girls, families and communities will naturally benefit. Indeed, the campaign message is: “It only takes ONE girl to change the world!
The slogan “Because I am a girl ” raises for us at Action Life the issue of sex selection abortion, the biggest threat to the lives of unborn baby girls. Sadly many girls in countries like India and China are not allowed to be born. The world will never know their contributions. Why? These unborn baby girls were aborted because they are girls.
