Gendercide of little girls in India – all in the name of my right to choose – the ending of the life of a little girl because of her gender. The story of India’s 70,000 ultra sound machines: technology developed to protect a mother’s health and that of her child – used as a search and destroy mission against female babies.

“Getting a licence for the equipment is easy and many so-called ?doctors? offer women the service without being qualified or registered.

There are 25,770 officially registered pre-natal units in India, but one doctor estimates there are as many as 70,000 ultrasound machines operating in the country. Nobody reports the unqualified technicians because it is not in their interest to do so.

Even the qualified doctors in registered clinics have ways of circumventing the law against using ultrasound tests to determine the sex of the foetus.

  1. This practice of aborting female foetuses happens here in Britain, not only in India. There are private clinics that specialise in this work. Knew someone once who worked in such a place in Ilford, Essex, which has a large Indian population. She said it was a killing factory.

    Frequently the pregnant woman is under huge family pressure to abort her female child, because of the future expense a girl can bring re dowries etc. The ignorance displayed is appallling and can only be redressed by education, not only of young women and girls, but the older women who assist in perpetuating this practice in the same way that they encourage female genital mutilation.
