Indian Deviation

new analysis of births in India finds that about 10 million female fetuses may have been aborted over the past two decades. Sexual selection is illegal in India, but the practice continues anyway.

Fewer girls than boys are born in India. A study published in the journal Lancet says the cause is undoubtedly prenatal sex determination using ultrasound technology, followed by abortion of female fetuses.
