Sin Begets Sin

Sex selection abortion is commonly practiced in India. Most parents want a boy, so they abort if the child is a girl. Sin begets sin. After decades of sex-selection abortion, other grievous problems have developed. One is a severe shortage of wives. It’’s said every village in India has five or six bachelors who can’’t find a wife, so brothers are sharing one woman among them. A woman who escaped such a situation said she was forced to have children for her husband’’s two brothers. When she resisted, she was beaten. Many parents who had daughters gave them names that mean “unwanted.” To counter this, a health officer arranged a renaming ceremony where girls could pick a more positive name. Sin begets sin. Like India, America too will suffer the judgment of abortion.
