Recently my mother showed me an article in the National Right to Life News about how in India at least three mass graves of female baby bodies have been found. One grave had 37 babies, another 260 babies, and another 430 body parts. Information indicates female feticide, but won't be proven until the tests are concluded. It is also suspected that the babies were killed from illegal sex-selection abortions. The article states that it is illegal in India to kill or abort a baby because of its gender, but activists say the government does little to help.
I would like to say that this is terrible and sick. As a Catholic I am strongly against abortion for any reason. I believe life is created at conception and abortion is murder. These babies are being aborted just because of their gender. They abort female babies because they feel males will better support the parents in their old age. I know that abortion is legal here in the United States, as well as in India, and it is becoming a major problem. Abortion in general is wrong, but now women in India are having their babies killed because they are female. This prejudice has led to 10 million female babies being aborted in the last 20 years. I just hope that the people who read this realize that abortion is not only a problem in the United States, but around the world. I urge people to join the pro-life cause to end abortion.
