"Hundreds of innocent lives are brutally taken away every minute aroud the world. Some unborn, some who have just entered the world yet to discover the beauty of it. In India, women are put under intense pressure to give birth to sons. Inspite of laws preventing sex determination tests and abortion based on the gender of the child, this practice is becoming popular even in the urban areas of India. As per a study, around 1.1 million girls are aborted in India every year. Whereas in China, due to 'One Child Policy' the rate of abortion of female foetus is on a rise at an alarming rate."
