Pumpkin's Southern Cross Death Room
The little girl nicknamed ‘Pumpkin’ was abandoned at Melbourne’s SoutherCross train station. The father subsequently fled to the United States. Outrage and shock has been reverberated through the media, and great affection has been laid upon the lost girl. The thought instantly goes to why a father would do such a thing to such an innocent girl. The answer lies within the Asian and/or Chinese culture. The one child policy and aspirations of male heirs in China has seen the creation of the dying rooms. Millions of baby girls are left to die through starvation and torture in orphanages all over China. These are effectively deaths camps, and is a great human tragedy happening right now. The recent incident in Australia conveys the culture is still active, even outside China’s shores. The father clearly with personal issues of his own has shed away the burden of his little daughter ‘Pumpkin’, something that may not have occurred if she was male. The only hope left is that Pumpkin’s story ends happily. The dying rooms in China need to be addressed as no human deserves such atrocious treatment.
