People Like Us Don’t Do Gender Selection

Sex selective abortion in India (or female foeticide as sometimes called) - is it only practiced by the poor and uneducated?

Tags:

People like us – educated, middle-class/affluent, urban, English-speaking people like us don’t do gender selection. We are not the ones who choose to abort on knowing that a foetus is female. Or so we like to think. Some of the comments in Sunil’s recent piece on whether we need Aamir Khan to educate us on this evil, also gave me the impression that somewhere in our hearts, we think the programme is meant for those unaware, uneducated masses and not for people like us.

Well, here I give you a page from a popular women’s portal, ostensibly written by and for people like us.

Do I need to say anymore?
