Boys vs. Girls

China is experiencing a multitude of social problems related to its one-child policy, since many families choose to abort any girls in order that their one allowed child might be a boy. A study  recently found that for every 119 male births, there are 100 female births.
One example is the increase in “runaway brides ,” women who take their “bride price” from desperate men, then leave their husbands after pocketing the money.
Another consequence is the kidnapping of young girls  in order that they might become brides in areas which have few eligible girls for all the available bachelors.
So what do more “civilized” countries do in response? We create a do-it-yourself “Gender Test ” so pregnant women can determine the gender of their child on their own and early in pregnancy. That sounds like a good idea.
