It is estimated that about 50 million girls have gone missing. They are aborted based on their sex. India has passed laws 18 years ago making it illegal for a medical practitioner to reveal the sex of an unborn baby. This law is rarely implemented because most of the government officials and judiciary are apathetic to this epidemic. This has caused the sex ratios to be extremely skewed in certain parts of India. Please read the following articles and the story of one lone woman, Dr Mitu Khurana, who has bought a case against the hospital, her husband and in- laws, who illegally found out the sex of her unborn twin baby girls and then tried to force her to have an abortion. She has been given the run around for four long years by the Indian judicial system.

Can anyone give a voice to the 50 million girls that have been silenced forever? All Dr. Khurana is asking for is a chance to go before an unbiased judge and be heard. Can we all give a voice to the 50 million murdered and raise the question with Indian officials as to why they are silently witnessing the elimination of a whole generation. The silence of the Indian officials tell the story and makes us wonder if Dr. Khurana and the 50 million dead baby girls will ever see justice done. Please give those 50 million girls silenced forever, a voice. Please forward this to as many friends as possible.

A daughter is a daughter for all her life.
Most educated people have started realizing this.

Child protection law backed by strong awareness campaign through various media and simplifying adoption rules can start getting desired results.

Most of these poor childrens are at risk of landing in the hand of begger mafia or exploited, abused. At least to start with Indian govt. need to make a system of headcount for street children and periodic well-being check. Gradually they can implement this in village and remote areas as well, plus there should be stricter law to deal with child abuser/molesters so that they refrain from doing such act.
