The public is invited to view "It's a Girl," a chilling and sobering film about the plight of female babies and children, as societies throughout the world make a determination of their "worth," based solely on their gender. The movie will be hosted by the Seminary's St. Ambrose Society, a pro-life, student-led group, and will be shown in the Metropolitan Philip Auditorium of the John G. Rangos Family Building, 7 p.m. on Friday, December 7th. The event is free.
Attorney Ian Jones, SVOTS alumnus and doctoral candidate at Fordham University, will give a presentation following the film. His talk will explore potential connections between gendercide in Asia and the cultural situation in the United States, in terms of both similarities and differences. Attention will be given to gender, economics, and differing conceptions of human dignity and personhood, and in particular, how these factors influence cultural attitudes toward abortion and infanticide.
