12-Year-Old Boy Brain Dead After Attempting New TikTok Fad

If I was the parent of a teenager in this day and age, I’d be a nervous wreck. I’m a nervous wreck and my daughter is 30.

So, I feel for all of you raising teenagers and young kids right now.

Social media is such a scary place – from predators to scammers to these absurd and dangerous “challenges,” it’s like a crapshoot for young people, who feel invincible and don’t understand the dangers.

The only way parents would know what’s going on with their kids online is to literally watch over their shoulders 24/7…social media is like a long, dark back alley…you might make it through unscathed, or you might get knifed and die. And it’s so wrong that these companies are not better at policing their own sites.

Social media will bend over backward to delete conservatives – but they’ll allow all of these sick predators and dangerous challenges to stay up – and people are dying because of it.

As a matter of fact, a 12-year-old boy is now brain dead, thanks to TikTok.

The boy was reportedly rushed to the hospital, but doctors have since told the family that he is brain-dead and will not recover. Now his parents are begging for more time.

“He’s a fighter. I can see him fighting. I’m praying for him every day,” Joshua’s father, Haileyesus Zeryihun, said, according to the news outlet. “It’s just heartbreaking to see him laying on the bed.”

“[They] told me the bad news that he’s not going to survive, he’s not going to make it,” the father added. “I was begging them on the floor, pleading to see if they can give me some time, not to give up on him. If I just give up on him, I feel like I’m just walking away from my son.”

This is so heartbreaking.

The family says that their son used social media a lot and had many great experiences from it.

He was very involved in cooking, guitar, and acting., and that’s all great…but there’s a dark side, too.

Now the family is warning others about the dangerous side of social media, as well.

Social media platforms need to be less worried about “Trump” and more focused on keeping their users alive and safe.


Nepal experiences increasing epidemic of missing girls from sex-selective abortion – By Cassy Fiano-Chesser

Nepal, missing girls, sex-selective abortion

The legalization of abortion in Nepal has had devastating consequences for the country, leading to an epidemic of missing girls. Like many Asian countries, there is a strong preference for boys instead of girls, as boys are seen as assets to bring the family money and status. Girls, on the other hand, are seen as burdens, with each family having to pay a dowry for daughters to be married. After the wedding, she then leaves her parents to join her husband’s family.

Yet it wasn’t until abortion became legal in 2002 in the country — and ultrasounds became widely available shortly after — that gendercide became a major problem.

The British Medical Journal (BMJ) performed an analysis of census data from Nepal, and found disturbing information: the number of “missing girls,” or girls aborted due to their gender, is rising. Between 2002 and 2011, the number of girls aborted who otherwise would have been born was 1 in 50. Between the years 2010 and 2011, that number had risen to 1 in 38.

In certain areas of the country, the crisis is even direr. In Arghakhanchi, for example, 1 in 6 girls are missing, while in the Kathmandu Valley, there are 115 boys born for every 100 girls.

Abortions due to gender are technically illegal in Nepal. But the laws against it are rarely enforced, allowing sex-selective abortion to thrive. BMJ researchers also found that the wealthier and more educated a woman was, the more likely she was to undergo a sex-selective abortion. Even worse, the team found that in districts with high numbers of sex-selective abortion, girls were disproportionately more likely to die before the age of five than boys were — indicating that girls are possibly being killed both before and after birth.

“As fertility falls and urbanization increases, there is more access to prenatal sex identification technology in Nepal,” Dr. Melanie Channon, lead author of the analysis, told the Eurasia Review. “Our study shows some of the impact this has had over recent years, and we expect there will be a ‘trickle-down’ of ability to select the sex of a baby from the wealthiest and most educated as the technology becomes more widely available and more affordable. Put simply and starkly, without concerted effort, there will be an increase in sex-selective abortions in Nepal.”

Gendercide continues to thrive around the world, despite the devastating consequences it has had in countries like China and India. The United Nations has estimated that there are at least 100 million missing girls due to sex-selective abortion, and it isn’t limited to Asian countries. It has been found in countries like Australia, the United States, and the United Kingdom; in Scotland, midwives admitted to concealing the gender of women’s babies for fear that they would choose abortion. Distorted sex ratios have led to serious horrors, such as increases in sex trafficking and child brides. Despite these atrocities, the abortion industry remains complicit in gendercide, willing to overlook these problems for the sake of profit.
