Do you know that the gender difference was up to 50 million more males than females in India by 2005, up from 35 million from a few years ago? The numbers involved are commentators to compare the deaths to genocide.
Cultural anthropologist Barbara D. Miller, working in Northern India, noted that over a five-day period, only male children were being brought in for treatment, while not a single girl was brought to the hospital.
Nisha is a film maker and director of the film, “The World Before Her.” It is a documentary focusing on the social evil of female infanticide.
Female foeticide in India accounts for a large part of the discrepancy in the sex ratio. The Indian Association for Women’s Studies reported in 1998 that 10,000 female fetuses are aborted yearly. An editorial in the Times of India gave a figure of 50,000 abortions of female fetuses yearly, while another study gave a figure of 78,000 killed between 1978 and 1983. The conflicted statistics in these studies show that this crime against women are an undetectable crime, and the numbers are indicative of genocide.
Please help me fight this evil and help spread the word. Your money will be used to screen this film in several parts of India specially in high risk areas and villages where these practices are common. This is a big undertaking and we won’t be able to do it without your support.
“Help save the next girl…one girl at a time!”
