Thank God, the election is over the issues resolved and we can get on with our lives. Except for women. In the next two years our bodies are going to be fodder for the presidential election. Isn’t anyone else appalled and dismayed this? Why are women’s bodies and the right to abortion or the right to birth control part of the political debate?  Is it because women do not own their bodies? This is an important premise to understand because if we do not own our bodies who does – and who gave them that right?

Roger Landry and I will be discussing these issues on Wednesday night. I promise you it will be an exciting and provocative discussion. One that I hope that everyone listening will have some sort of take-away that might change their live and/or their decisions.

 

Roger_Landry_1Roger Landry Founded The Liberty Beacon Project on August 19th 2012 with the belief that the most important issue facing mankind today is programed ignorance. Being unaware of the lie makes it all but impossible to eradicate it. The project was set up to eradicate this ignorance by providing truth and an abundance if information to the global community through national and international websites and radio shows. TLB has since gathered many Truth Sayers from across the globe culminating in an organization with a large and growing voice.

Roger was born in 1954 and joined the US Navy’s nuclear submarine fleet in 1972. After an eight year tour he went to work for Raytheon Services Company as a Senior Field Engineer and projects manager facilitating US Department of Defense contracts. Roger has extensive US and global travel helping to raise his awareness of the issues facing not only America but the world today.

 

Sex Exploitation of Women and Girls

The statistics are ugly: one woman somewhere in the world dies every minute of every day due to pregnancy and childbirth-related complications. The United Nations estimates that three million girls worldwide are at risk of female genital cutting each year. Every year, tens of thousands of women die due to unsafe abortions. And the sex trafficking of girls and women continues to be a problem that affects many countries. (1.)

The problem is that—these girls are not considered victims. So while in the United States, we have the very same child sex slave markets as in Cambodia, the Philippines, and India, the girls from here, the girls from Southeast DC or South Central LA, are seen as the “ho,” the bad girl, the teen hooker.

It is time to really see these girls and help them. Because no girl in America, in the 21st century, should be for sale. (2.)

 

 

Other forms of violence against women include:

Female Infanticide: (or infant homicide) is the intentional killing of infants. Neonaticide, killing within 24 hours of a child’s birth, is most commonly done by the mother whereas infanticide of a child more than one day old is slightly more likely to be committed by the father. (3.)(4.)

Dowry Death: the deaths of young women in primarily India who are murdered or driven to suicide by continuous harassment and torture by husbands and in-laws in an effort to extort an increased dowry. Dowry death is considered one of the many categories of violence against women in India, alongside bride burning, Eve teasing, and acid throwing. (3.)(4.)

Female Feticide/Sex Selective Abortion: the act of aborting a fetus because it is female. (3.)(4.)

Illegally Pregnant: having a second child (girl) mostly in China who will then be considered a ‘bastard’ and a ward of the state. The pregnant mother also becomes victimized, abused and harassed.  (5.)(6.)

Forced Abortion/Forced Sterilization: the perpetrator; in this case the Chinese government’s one-child policy, causes abortion by force, threat or coercion, or by taking advantage of woman’s incapability to give her consent. This may also include the instances when the conduct was neither justified by medical or hospital treatment. Like forced sterilization, forced abortion may include a physical invasion of female reproductive organs.

Forced abortion was denounced as a crime against humanity at the Nuremberg Trials. (3.)(4.)

As a result of China’s one-child policy approximately 30 million more men than women will reach adulthood and enter China’s mating market by 2020. (5.)

Child Trafficking: Because of the uneven ratio of men to women in China – one would think that women would become more valued and China’s abortion policy would be reversed – children; infant girls are kidnapped from families and sold into other families to be groomed as wives for the sons.  So girls and boys are growing up and developing together – and then married. (3.)(4.)

Abandonment of Elderly Women: Deserting a dependent person with the intent to abandon them or leave them unattended at a place for such a time period as may be likely to endanger their health or welfare. (4.)
