• Infanticide sometimes referred as infant homicide is the intentional killing of infants.• In many past societies, certain forms of infanticide were considered permissible. In India, female infanticide is more common than the killing of male offspring, due to sex- selective infanticide.
Women are perceived as subservient because of their roleas homemakers, whilst men predominantly ensure thefamilys social and economic stability. Some parents particularly poor ones who cant afford tosupport a large family, will kill female babies. Girls are considered a drain on family resources duringtheir childhood without bringing economic benefits later on.Some girl babies are killed so that the family doesnt haveto pay a dowry when they get married.
It’s A GIRL The three deadliest words in the worldThe infant was wrapped in a wet towel or dipped in cold water assoon as it was born or when it came back home from hospital. If, after a couple of hours, it was still alive it was taken to a doctorwho would diagnose pneumonia and prescribe medicine, which theparents promptly threw away. When the child finally died, the parents had a medical certificate toprove pneumonia. Sometimes the infant was fed a drop of alcohol to create diarrhea:another certifiable disease.
