ADF India Vanishing Girls

Every year in India, girls are killed in the womb simply for being girls. 12 million girls have gone missing in the last three decades. Most females in India are considered a burden on families and have little or no value. The practice of killing girls in the womb is now routine. For every 1,000 male births there are only 918 female births. Existing laws were enacted to stop sex selective abortions, but enforcement of these laws has been feeble. Even with the Pre Conception Pre Natal Diagnostics Techniques (PCPNDT) (Prohibition of Sex Selection) Act, 1994, through 2017, there had been only 449 convictions in a nation of 1.2 billion people.
