FEMALE FOETICIDE: ROOT CAUSES, PRACTICES AND PREVENTION
Female foeticide takes place when a foetus is aborted after it is determined to be female. Under this illegal practice, the sex of the unborn child is determined by using the technique of ultrasound and if it happens to be a female foetus, it is aborted through medicine or surgery. It is one of the most rampant social evils in the country rooted in the patriarchal mindset where boys are preferred over girls for various irrational reasons, not only in rural but urban areas too. To carry forward the generation, families in general prefer the birth of sons over daughters. The male child is also desired by the Hindu family to perform the last rites of father in the absence of whom, it is believed that the father wouldn’t attain salvation after death. In most traditional conservative families, a girl child is more or less considered a liability or a burden, due to the frequent demands of huge sum in the form of dowry at the time of her marriage.
To stop the evil practice of female foeticide, strict punishment in the form of fine or jail to the person requesting abortion of the unborn girl child is prescribed under Prenatal Diagnostics Techniques (PNDT) Act. Simultaneously the practitioner who helps in sex determination for this purpose is also required to be punished equally. But Law has been unable to curb the misuse of ultrasound machines by unscrupulous operators. However, the winds of change have now started blowing in the society with girls doing well in diverse professions, which were considered male-bastions up until now, such as boxing, wrestling, armed forces etc.
‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ has become a countrywide movement. Fortunately, a growing number of medical practitioners have now rallied themselves against the sex selective abortions. These positive changes are very encouraging for the development of the nation and will also help in correcting the skewed male-female ratio in many states of the country, as the society is now beginning to realize the importance of the girl child with the result that equal opportunities of nutrition, health, education and employment are now available to women.
