Lecture on Sex-Selection Abortion Featured on Seminary's AFR Podcast

10 December 2012 • On–Campus • Student Interest Group

Ancient Faith Radio's newest Voices From St. Vladimir's Seminary podcast features a talk by Ian Jones titled "Gender, Economics, and Abortion in the Asian and American contexts." A graduate of St. Vladimir's Seminary and a doctoral candidate at Fordham University, Mr. Jones presented a free, public lecture on Friday, December 7th, in the Metropolitan Philip Auditorium of the John G. Rangos Family Building.

Sponsored by the pro–life, student–led group, the St. Ambrose Society, the evening began with a screening of the documentary "It's a Girl," a sobering film about the plight of female babies and children and the practice of sex–selection abortion. The address by Mr. Jones followed, and then those attending processed what they'd seen and heard via lively breakout discussion groups.

Symbolic bouquets of roses graced the Metropolitan Philip Auditorium; each rose represented two million missing girls aborted because of their gender. Rough estimates calculate that at least 200 million girls have died or gone missing due to being victims of sex-selective abortions. All who attended the lecture and screening were urged to take a few roses home as a reminder to pray for the many and numerous victims of abortion.
