Female infanticide is on the rise in India despite government efforts to stop the practice. Abortions are a lucrative business in India. Abortion
clinics actually advertise for example "Pay 500 rupees and save 50,000 rupees later" refering to how much a dowry would cost later.
The oleander plant yields a bright, pleasant flower, but also a milky sap that, if ingested, can be a deadly poison. It's one of the methods families
use to kill newborn girls in the Salem District of Tamil Nadu, a part of India notorious for female infanticide.
Infanticide is illegal in India (though never prosecuted),The government of India should do all that can to make sure this practice is stopped! If
they can not do it than other countries should intervene, this form of genecide should not be allowed to continue, how can we call ourselves a
civilized world when this kind of practice continues?
