Within their press statement The United Nations Population Fund had quote from Hon. Ms. Navi Pillay High Commissioner for Human Rights that is fitting because the 7 billion baby was a girl.
“If she was born a girl, she will have fewer choices. If born in the developing world, she or he will have fewer opportunities. If born a descendant of Africans in a non-African country, or as an indigenous person, member of a religious minority, or as a Roma, she or he is likely to face discrimination and marginalization, with a childhood rife with vulnerability, and a future adult life hedged in by exclusion.”
