A glaring irony stands out in the face of the Indian administration as it grapples with one of the biggest administrative failures, in the form of the unbridled prenatal sex determination and consequent selective abortions. The malice towards the unborn fetus and newly born female child continues even as statistics throw up some of the most startling facts. Here, at the Save Girl Child mission, we throw up some of the most soul-stirring nuggets of information on this.

  • Widespread sex testing leads to a female fetus’s abortion every 12 seconds in India.
  • The 2011 census puts the sex ratio to an all time low at 919 girls to 1000 boys.
  • The most affluent states include Punjab, Haryana and Maharashtra are the worst affected.
  • The National Crimes Records Bureau, India’s very own watchdog, the number of minor girls being raped in India increased by 82% in 2016.
  • In a shocking 95% of cases, the rapists were not strangers, but were amongst family members, friends or friendly neighbors.

The fact that the collective cluster of Indian legal system and terribly patriarchal society prefer to stay in a total denial about the gross abuse of the Indian girl child has aggravated the problem to no end.[/vc_column_text][/contentbox][/vc_column][/vc_row]
