How can feminists condone this massacre of unborn girls?

‘In our country, 50,000 babies are aborted every month for one reason: they are girls instead of boys. India’s skewed sex ratio shows that, as a nation, we have failed girls. They are either aborted or, once born, subject to various forms of violence. It’s time to address this issue, especially on the National Girl Child Day. Whoever believes that women share the same rights as men cannot turn a blind eye to what is happening in India today.’

This statement from the human rights organisation ADF spearheaded an awareness campaign launched by the Chief Minister of Delhi to protect girls in the womb. India is finally addressing a problem that amounts to an ongoing gendercide of 63 million unborn female babies to date, according to India’s annual economic survey,  and 100 million girls worldwide, according to Indian economist and Nobel laureate Amartya Sen.

In 2014, another report acknowledged that female foeticide had led to a shortfall of 200 million girls worldwide. And an investigation by the Independent revealed that the barbaric practice is not confined to the developing world. It is ‘widely practised within some ethnic communities in Britain and has resulted in significant shortfalls in the proportion of girls’.

The investigation also noted that the ‘practice of sex-selective abortion is now so commonplace that it has affected the natural 50:50 balance of boys to girls within some immigrant groups and has led to the “disappearance” of between 1,400 and 4,700 females from the national census records of England and Wales.’
