Voice of Unborn Girl—Female Foeticide—

Every year more than 1000000 girls missed first moment on their life because their parents want a Boy. Female Foeticide is social sin or tortured murder what we can say. According to the 2011 census, there were 914 girls for every 1,000 boys. Though there is a law prohibition sex discriminatory abortion, but it is just for name. Till date not a single license canceled or punishment given to doctor who is involved in this social evil. Infant killing basically starts in 1961 but it grows in very fast pace till date.
According to United Nations, A projected 2,000 unborn girls are illegally aborted every day in India. Shockingly found by reports this trend having vast count in urban areas as compared to rural ones. Two main immoral states are PUNJAB & HARYANA, where sex ratio 893 & 877 females per 1000 males respectively. Some more culprit states are Delhi, Chandigarh and Gujarat where sex ratio is incredibly low. All these reports eradicate the myths that education & affluence will help to balance gender bias. Even some tribal areas are far better than major cities as sex ratio is concerned.
Though the government enacts the Pre- Natal Diagnostic Techniques (Regulation and Prevention of Misuse) Act in 1994, which came into force in 1996, by this action situation got worse instead of improvement. Private clinic starts providing this service because govt. barred this service in government hospitals. It is terrible to see one of the noblest professions doctors take part in this banned and brutal money making business enterprise by completely ignoring their moral duties. It is ironic to know that maximum abortions are performed by lady doctors and apart from this more disheartening is the fact that women agree to take part in this immoral activity.
After number of activities and program by government, social activist there is improvement shown in SEX ratio by only one state Kerala with two union Territories, Lakshadweep and Pondicherry. Everywhere else, count is very low. Just imagine a society without women? Number of studies shown that lesser women results in violence in society.
3 female children killed every minute in India. This is question mark on human ethics also. Think about it…..
