    its really shame for us that even though there are many ladies leading in India, still we think girls as unwanted and consider only boys as

    "GHAR KA CHIRAG OR KULDEEPAK"

    we need to change this attitude.....

    Default female foeticide

    It can be stopped by changing the thinking of the people that not only boys girls are equally supportive to the family.. today girls are walking on the road shoulder to shoulder to men.. Educating the girl that how important girl is can stop the female foeticide..

    Education : It pays an important role in educating people to stop female foeticide .. killing girl child is a sin and it must be stopped.. it can only be done through educating people about the girl child..

    Exactly.. this attitude needs to be changed.. today not only boys but girls are considered as a support to family.. they are independent and can take care of the whole family alone..people should be educated and then only this canbe stop..

    Default Indian Social system need change

    Well, If we need to find the solution of Female Foeticide the first thing we need to find out is why Indian parents don't want a girl as a child ??

    We Indians know many reasons, Gender bias related causes. The basic problem is in Indian Social system and Indian Society. The fundamental difference is something like business. When you invest, you like to get return. When you invest in son, it will give you return but when you invest in daughter, it will give return to others in future.

    This mindset need to change. First thing, parents must be independent from both, Boys as well as Girls. Parents expectations that son will take care of them in old age and daughter-in-law will perform the family responsibility is wrong. Let them live their life and plan your old age on your own. Its different case that when parents are in need and children go an support them but it should not be a traditions.

    Secondly, as boy's parents are responsibility of both guy and his wife, similarly girl's parent's responsibility is also on both. If girl's parents need financial support that girls must be allowed to support them even after marriage. Than parents will give the importance to girls education also.

    It is democracy; a every family has the right to select the gender of their child. Anyway, illegalizing this will make this practice more popular and drive the market abroad in Thailand or underground.

    foremost thing which needs to be done is change of mindset of rural people who think having a male baby is more prestigious than having a girl baby. if this mindset is changed, then there wont be much left to do. and this can be done by displaying ads promoted by celebrities and celebrities giving speech on this topic visiting all places.

    Female foeticide can only be stopped through the banned on ultra sound during pregnancy and government should snatch the licence of those doctors who do such practice. Those doctors who tell people for few bucks that the child inside their womb is male or female should be banned and due to this the doctors will be afraid to do so. This can be done through a regular check on the doctors and hospitals.

    By putting a complete and strict ban on Ultra sound as well as sonography in the initial months of pregnancy. It can only be made indispensable at the time of need say in 8th or 9th month of pregnancy so that there are no chances of female foticide and killing of a young baby. If this is done then killing girl child can be stopped to a great extent.

    Female foticide can only be stopped only when the thinking and the behavior of orthodox rural people are changed. The problem of female foticide is becoming a huge problem in the country like india. People have given more importance to boys in comparison to girls and which is a sour fact in todays life. In fact not only rural but urban people also think the same way. this thinking need a reformation and then only this can be stopped.

    education is the best way to stop female foeticide in india and other parts of the world. women are an important part of everyone's life and bear a lot. she is the one who run the family quite well and if we start killing girl child inside the womb then who will run the family?? There will be less girls in comparison to men. So educate girls and parents to stop killing females inside the womb.

    Educating people that females are equally important as males would help in reducing the number of cases. Apart from this doctors should be made to follow strict codes of ethics to prevent such foeticides as this not only taints the medical profession, but also indian nation as whole. We have developed almost in all areas and we cannot let such age old malpractices to run, causing malign to the society, and nations demographics.

    Measures For Increasing Sex-Ratio In India: To improve sex ratio, Indian Government has adopted multi-pronged strategy including legislative measures, awareness programs, advocacy, and programs for the women's socio-economic empowerment. Under an act passed in 1994 sex-selective abortions had been made a punishable offense. Foeticide is also penalized under IPC section 315.
