Sex-selection abortion is rampant in India, where parents treasure sons and dispose of their unwanted preborn daughters.
A government report shows India has an alarming imbalanced ratio of boys to girls: For every 100 females born in India, there are 107.6 males birthed. The natural average is 105 to 100.
Girls are “notionally…unwanted,” India’s Economic Survey 2017-18 states. Boys traditionally ensure parental economic care, while girls traditionally leave the family and cost a dowry.
