Three things that might improve this article, but for which I do not have the time, currently:
1. A special section devoted to the general treatment of women by Christians in the first four centuries after Christ's Resurrection. Much of this could come from the pertinent chapter in Stark's book, The Rise of Christianity. Why? This would show--we've faced before--of the conjunction of feticide/infanticide and the low status of women.
2. More statistics on female feticide, with a broader base of research. Name organizations responding to this issue? What does the UN say?
3. Patristic quotes defending babies, the value of females. More thorough theological treatment of this issue. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Crawlingpilgrim (talk • contribs) .
