That's the title of the London Daily Mail article about how sex-selection abortions have eliminated over 10 million girls in the last 20 years, with projections that it could become upwards of 1 million a year.
The article explores the various roots of this phenomenon, how it has prospered despite the 1994 law banning such a practice, and some of the emerging consequences it has had on the society.
I agree with the generalized feminists in the article that Indian society does need to value women more highly, because few other solutions will turn this trend around. It would be a tragedy, though, if demographic crisis were the factor that led to the change in society. What I mean is, if sex-selection abortions were to continue, eventually the point will be reached where India's demographics are simply untenable. Imagine a population ratio of 50 or 100:1 of men to women. Reaching such a place might cause distinct changes in India's culture, but not without consequences for the country.
Still, I can't help but wonder if the feminists would be willing to let go of abortion to help solve this problem. Women were killing their daughters before abortion, but to say that abortion didn't exacerbate this would be dishonest.
Or will anyone on the "pro-choice" side of the fence look openly at such things? America has its own demographics/abortion problems, but I've yet to see any pro-choice writer address it.
