Dr. Jim Garrow is well-known for his books and for his humanitarian work to rescue Chinese girls from certain death. The one-child policy in China leads many parents to kill girl babies, either before or after they are born. It is far more prestigious to have a male child than a girl, so they kill the girls.
Over the last 16 years, Garrow’s efforts have rescued an estimated 40,000 girl babies from China at a cost of over $25 million. Almost all of these girls would have been killed had they not been rescued and taken out of the country. Today, he is the founder and executive director of the Bethune Institute’s Pink Pagoda schools. There are 168 private schools in his program that employ 6,300 people, all with the goal of raising and teaching the Chinese girls in a English speaking environment.
Garrow’s has written about his effort to save China’s girls by authoring the book, The Pink Pagoda: One Man’s Quest to End Gendercide in China.
Dr. Garrow is not known for being a wild crackpot or part of the political fringe, so when he recently made the following post on his Facebook page, it got the attention of a number people:

When asked who is source was, Garrow replied:
“The man who told me this is one of America’s foremost military heroes.”
One has to wonder if this had anything to do with President Obama’s dismissal of Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis from his post as commander of the Central Command. The Washington Free Beacon commented on the dismissal, saying:
