Abortion + Communism = Totalitarianism

China is suffering from aborting so many little girls. Saying "I told you so" would be taking it easy on that government.
Thanks to its 30-year-old population-planning policy and customary preference for boys, China has one of the largest male-to-female ratios in the world. Using data from the 2005 China census -- the most recent -- a study published in last month's British Journal of Medicine estimates there was a surplus of 32 million males under the age of 20 at the time the census was taken. That's roughly the size of Canada's population.

I've heard it said that population pressures cause war. If that's true, because China has a surplus of men, we might expect them to wage war just to occupy them. Of course I sincerely hope this doesn't happen.

On the other hand, perhaps by God's grace the whole country will be converted and provide priests to the world.
