Infant Sex Changes In India
I really, really wish this was a satirical post…or even that I could find something funny about it. I couldn’t. Once in a while the Sexual Dark Age comes up with a way to horrify even me. This joins a trend of selective abortions, with female fetuses being terminated just for being female. You may have heard similar stories about China.
FYI, the long-term ramifications of a procedure like this are virtually certain to be horrible for the child.
From The Telegraph: Madhya Pradesh state government is investigating claims that up to 300 girls were surgically turned into boys in one city after their parents paid about £2,000 each for the operations…
Ranjana Kumari, of the Centre for Social Research and one of India’s leading campaigners against female foeticide, said the surgical transformation of girls into boys without their informed consent was a sign of India’s growing “social madness”.
