UK Charity: Female Babies Disappearing From India

Increasing numbers of baby girls in India are either being aborted in the womb or fatally neglected, a British charity alleges. 

ActionAid said in a report that the number of baby girls in India has reached a record low due to the country’s alleged cultural practice of favoring boys over girls, the BBC reported Saturday.

The group’s “Disappearing Daughters” report says in the Indian state of Punjab, there currently are only 300 female children for every 1,000 male children born to high caste families.

The rest.
