They are more discriminated against than boys are for being minors and female. Furthermore, this double discrimination can become triple discrimination if one adds other factors, such as being poor or disabled , or belonging to a minority group. Consequently, there are 96 million illiterate girls aged between 15 and 24, compared to 57 million illiterate boys. This can mean that they are forced to leave school. Pregnancy is the number one cause of death among 15 to year-old girls. More boys born have been intentionally carried to full-term and girls die more frequently before the age of five. There are various factors that contribute to this situation. One is the wish which is very strong in some countries to have a son rather than a daughter. This is the case in China where a law limiting parents to having only one child has been introduced. The fact that men are considered more important in the social hierarchy means that many couples choose to terminate a pregnancy if the child would have been a girl.

Nonjuror asks :. Tim Loughton MP wants each of any pair of unders who have sex to face criminal prosecution under the existing law. As I understand it, all persons have a human right to consensual sexual activity, so are the grounds on which these unders are deemed not to have that right going suddenly, at some time, to be similarly found untenable because this prohibition is founded on no more than the interest, inconvenience or embarrassment of adults? For centuries, the law prohibiting sexual activity with children has operated on the basis that there is a certain age below which children cannot consent to sex. The statutory age of consent for heterosexual sex has gradually increased from 11 to 16 and this is also now the age at which consensual homosexual sex is legal. Under the Sexual Offences Act it is an offence to engage in any sexual activity with a child under the age of 16, and the prosecution need not prove lack of consent. It is a defence if the perpetrator reasonably believed that the child was 16 or over but only if the child was in fact 13 or over. For some offences, the penalties differ depending on the age of the perpetrator; except in the case of certain offences specifically relating to sexual activity with unders, the maximum sentence for a person who was under 18 at the time of the offence is five years' imprisonment, whereas for overs the maximum terms range between 10 years and life imprisonment. The effect of the law is that if two year-olds engage in consensual sexual activity and each knows that the other is under 16, they will both be guilty of an offence carrying a maximum penalty of five years' imprisonment.
I also remember my father a stake president telling me the night before I got married that every single couple he had counseled through marriage struggles were not reading their scriptures or praying together every night. It would put him in a position of feeling less and being looked down on. I feel as if I am a single parent. I hope this will change in the future - it would be difficult living a lifestyle like this in the long run. Once she realizes you won't join and she can't get married in the temple, then I suspect everything will be over. I noticed that in Asia they care much more about language skills than here.
