Female foeticide is a grave problem plaguing India since a very long time. It is a heinous crime to even consider killing / aborting a girl child. It is nothing but cold-blooded murder. The act of aborting or terminating a foetus while it’s still in the womb, because it is female, is known as female feticide. This can be done after determining the sex of the child before it’s born, through ultrasound scans. Female foeticide has become a shameful and shocking reality of our nation.
Though the implementation of the Preconception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (Prohibition of Sex Selection) Act of 1994 (PC&PNDT Act) has reduced the female foeticide, that couldn’t stop this completely. Youth Veerangnayen recognized the need for reformation in the attitude of people to look beyond the ancestral and biased view about male child, lack of education, ever increasing population and dowry. Making women aware of their rights by reaching door to door, conducting rallies, writing slogans are a few of the endeavours we took to make the world a better place for women.
