Imagine giving birth and hearing your newborn scream, as her father kills her, for being a girl…this is reality for mothers in india and china
Gendercide is a neologism that refers to the systematic killing of members of a specific sex.
Gendercide is reported to be a rising problem in several countries. Census statistics report that in countries such as China and India, the male to female ratio is as high as 120 men for every 100 women. In addition to Sex-selective abortion, gendercide also takes the forms of infanticide, and lethal violence against a particular gender at any stage of life.
“India’s 2011 census report has many heartening things to say. More educated men and women indicate a surge in literacy. People are living longer than ever before. Stability can be seen in the size of family; couples are having fewer children. One exception to this hunky-dory picture is the steep fall in the number of girls. There are only 914 girls, 6 years old and under, for every 1,000 boys — not shocking if one considers that as many as 60,000 girls go missing every year. To use the word missing is a misnomer: The girls are killed often as soon as they are born in a society obsessed with boys. Many are aborted in the womb. According to statistics, the sex ratio in India may be less slanted than it is in China. But while China’s ratio has stabilized, India’s is showing a disturbing trend. The gap between the number of boys and girls is widening alarmingly”
