more on female infanticide in India

India's PM gave a speech on combating female feticide.

There is continued upset at the fact that the law, forbidding ultrasound technicians from telling parents the sex of their babies, is not being enforced. The Prime Minister actually came under some criticism for saying that attitudes, and not law enforcement practices need to change to prevent female infanticide.

Does no one wonder what happens to women whose parents carried female fetuses to term only because it was against the law to abort them? Clearly this is not an isolated problem that disappears if you can get the girls out of the womb!
