Female feticide- case study analysis- a human right perspective
T Seshasai, Sukanya Seshasai
Female fetus is given less importance and the old mother in law desires to bless son only. In India we observed the female fetus is not treated as equal to male fetus. In 22 episodes how a female fetus is made to die by their own family members are illustrated. The social attitude of the people to wards female fetus is required to change. But the policies of one child norm are creating more ideas to possess a male child. This is the cause the sonologists are doing sex determination and the family members recommending for the Medical termination of pregnancy at 18 to 19 weeks. The legislations, the 30% reservations for the women, equality rights for the both genders are still in growing stage. Public awareness is required to change the attitude and the female feticide is to be stopped.
