The Red Sea: "It's a Girl" by Christina

It's a Girl

 

by Christina

 

You cannot hear her,

but her cries are great.

She pleads for mercy,

 

before it's too late.

 

She wishes and dreams,

and prays to God above.

For a second chance,

 

or just a miracle of love.

 

Is she not worthy?

The debate hold her life.

To have her own voice,

or to end it with a knife?

 

She's breathing and beating,

and she wants you to see

the value of her life

and what she could be.

 

She knows it's hard,

but please understand.

The murder of her,

is the destroyer of the land.

 

 

Summary

“It’s a Girl” emphasizes how valuable a girl’s life is. Girl’s have endless opportunities, dreams, wishes, purpose, as long as they are given the chance to experience life for themselves. Forced abortion in China is not making mothers “un-pregnant” but instead, is adding to the genocide of innocent blood and cries from the Lord’s beloved. Girls have just as much worth as men, she has purpose and dreams for her life, and God loves her just as much as any man. The genocide of females have been destroying China and will continue to devastate those exploited by it. My dream for China is for all females to be given a miracle of love.

My name is Christina and I am a 19 year old American, pro-life, Christ Follower. Being given the opportunity to help women in China would be such a blessing to me. I created this piece because women and children exploitation breaks my heart. I value all life, regardless of disability, gender, age, ethnicity, social and economic status. This piece is a reflection of the lives lost to injustice, and it reflects my attitude toward it.

Twenty-five years after it was launched, China’s “One Child” population control policy is credited with cutting population growth to an all time low and contributing to two decades of spectacular economic development. But the costs associated with the policy are also apparent and are rising: a growing proportion of elderly with inadequate government or family support, a disproportionately high number of male births attributable to sex selective...

The events in China due to the One-Child policy are heart-breaking and at times it is easy to get discouraged and lose hope.  But when we stop to consider the heart and mission of God we can press forward.  Hebrews 12:1 says: "Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us."...
