  • 4. "Female infanticide is the intentional killing of baby girls due to the preference for male babies and from the low value associated with the birth of females."
  • 5. • It is the worst form of abuse of Human rights of a girl child. • Women are worshipped as 'Shakti', 'Durga' but speaking in more practical terms men find it difficult to respect women. • Destruction of female fetus is a clear violation of human rights of the child.

Pre-Birth Elimination of Females An Immoral Practice • When Girls go missing in a society. • When a child is denied the right to life only because she is a girl. • Discrimination starts when a girl is in a womb and continues till the grave. • When a girl’s right to bloom and blossom is nipped in the bud. Can you sit back and ignore it ???
  • 7.  Female Infanticide: The murder of a female infant. It occurs often as a deliberate murder or abandonment of a young girl or infant.  Selective Abortion: Also called gender-selective abortion, sex-selective abortion, or female feticide-selective abortion. It involves the abortion of a fetus because it is a girl. Many women from communities or cultures with a preference for boys practice selective abortion. The Girl Child forms of discrimination
  • 8.  Female Genital Cutting (FGC): The practice that involves the removal or the alteration of the female genitalia. It is a centuries-old practice found in many countries among people from various religions and beliefs, most prevalent in Africa.  Honor Killing: The practice of killing girls and women who are perceived to have dishonored a family’s reputation by allegedly engaging in sexual activity or other improprieties before or outside of marriage. ‘Improper’ behavior justifies grounds for killing. It has expanded to include transgressions, which are not initiated by the girl, including rape and incest. The Girl Child forms of discrimination
  • 9.  Currently, 60 million girls are reported as “missing” as a result of infanticide, sex selective abortions, and neglect.  At least 130 million girls alive today have undergone Female Genital Mutilation, and 2 million more are at risk every year.  It is reported that at least 5,000 women and girls are murdered each year for “honor’s sake” by members of their own families.  United Nation statistics, national reports and studies initiated by non-governmental organizations repeatedly show that girls, as a group, have lower literacy rates, receive less health care, and more impoverished than boys.
