In India, there is a strong cultural preference for male children. While India has no government organization limiting the number of children a family can have, the fact that daughters require a sizable financial dowry in order to marry means that they are seen as a drain on a family's wealth. As a result, UNICEF estimates that about five million female fetuses are aborted every year and girls under the age of five have 75% higher mortality rates than young boys.
No girl should be killed simply because of her gender. Sign the petition telling world leaders to end female gendercide in India.
