So What If We Did Not Get Rid Of The Female Fetus,We Can Turn Our Little Girls Into Boys

If you are a progenitor filled with consternation for begetting a female and discombobulated about how to whip the encumbrance of rearing a girl,you no more need to feel dispirited.You have a panacea “sex change operation” by the dint of which you can turn your little girl into a boy.

Few months ago a report in The Telegraph asseverated that parents in India avowedly are paying £2,000 (around $3200) to have their young daughters undergo gender reassignment surgery in order to turn them into sons.Parents are resorting to this surgery in order to eschew the supplemental expenses of nurturing a girl.India exhibits a strong and persistent preference for sons.Indians are exceptionally consumed with the notion that girl child is a liability and a male child an asset.Presently, there are 7 million more boys than girls under age six in India,and the reason for this skewed gender ratio is quite apparent.Female feticide is a matter of course today in India.And the introduction of this new technique will make the situation all the more cantankerous.The state government of Madhya pradesh is already probing 300 cases in which girls have reportedly undergone genitoplasty.

The Telegraph annotates :

                 The surgery, known as genitoplasty, fashions a penis from female organs, with the child being injected with male hormones to create a boy.

                  Dr V P Goswami, the president of the Indian Academy of Paediatrics in Indore, described the disclosures as shocking and warned parents that the procedure would leave their child impotent and infertile in adulthood.

                “Genitoplasty is possible on a normal baby of both the sexes but later on these organs will not grow with the hormonal influence and this will lead to their infertility as well as their impotency. It is shocking news and we will be looking into it and taking corrective measures,” he said. “Parents have to consider the social as well as the psychological impact of such procedures on the child.”

This newfangled technique will proliferate social madness in India, Up till now we haven’t been able to ward off the evil of female feticide,the introduction of such hideous methods will prove all the more detrimental to the survival of a girl.What are we striving for A nation where only men will survive ?


sex-selective abortions in India

A foetus in a woman's womb

“Up to 6 million foetuses were aborted because they were female in India in the last decade, according to the Lancet.couples who do not want a large family and are determined to have a son. The practice is more widespread among wealthier and better educated Indian families, who are better able to afford the prenatal tests and medical intervention they want..”

India is having a skewed sex ratio,and the reason for this is quite apparent,Indian’s are still obsessed with male child.  This year’s Indian census revealed that there are about 7.1 million fewer girls than boys under the age of six. The gap has grown substantially since the 2001 census, which found 6 million fewer girls, and the 1991 census, 4.2 million fewer.

The researchers used census data to estimate the absolute numbers of abortions for reasons of sex selection. They used information on more than 250,000 births in national surveys to work out the difference in the girl-boy ratio in second births in families where the first child was a girl.

They found that the ratio in second births where the first child was a daughter fell from 906 girls per 1,000 boys in 1990 to 836 in 2005 – a drop of 0.52% a year. But there was no decline in the ratio among couples whose first child was a son.Over the 30 years from 1980 to 2010, there could have been as many as 12 million abortions of girls.

Lamentably,the son preference syndrome is common to all Indian’s regardless of their education and status.How could this gendercide be curbed is debatable?????
