I have a lot of Indian friends who I know to be good, rational, and caring people. Many of them have daughters. So reading that India will have 300 million more men than women by 2020 due to the abortion of female fetuses is amazing to me.
The articles, called Killing Eve: India's Abortion Crisis seem a bit one-sided, but the facts alone are disturbing. The practice of killing girls in the womb is practiced by Hindus, Christians, and Muslims in India and is equally prevalent in rich and poor communities. Some of the statistics suggest that the female birth rate is 15% lower than expected.
