Solutions To India's Girl Baby Murder Problem

In response to Umari Ayim's post about the practice of female-infanticide in India (poor people killing their baby girls because they can't afford to raise them and pay their dowries when they are of age), I suggested two ways to solve the problem:

1) A dirt-cheap and speedy adoption process, open to locals and foreigners of any religion or orientation. There are many people in the world who would give anything to have a baby girl. The adoption process should probably include some monetary compensation for the biological parents.

2) Legalization of early stage abortion (up to 3 months or so) for any reason or purpose whatsoever, such as the fetus being the wrong sex. Abortion is awful, but it's not as awful as parents killing their own children or abandoning them, or abusing them. In other words, legalize the lesser evil to prevent a more terrible one.

  1. Nice. However, India might have a long-term problem on its hands. 18 - 25 years from now, there will be a lot more young men than women. Their government needs to keep an eye out for that.

  2. Great post Seun. I wish my brothers in Cameroon could get the true implication of this information.

  5. Is that surposed to be a law or a custom .?
