Mitu Khurana, is a doctor herself, whose husband and in-laws tried their best to get rid of her twin girls when they were in the womb. She is the first woman in India to have taken legal action under the PCPNDT (Pre-Conception & Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques) Act against her husband, in-laws and the hospital for the sex-determination test.
The lower courts gave awareness to her case but the hospital and doctor have appealed in the higher courts against cognizance and it has been pending since 2010. In fact, Mitu is fighting a dozen other cases including domestic violence, dowry and custody of children, and her email is being hacked. “
How long will the system further victimize mothers like me? She asks. Mitu and her story were featured in the film “It’s A Girl.”
GirlKIND supports getting Mitu her deserved justice in her fight against the abuses she faced for bearing daughters. “What should I do to save my daughters?” She asks.
She is fighting back so her daughters will not endure what she did; she is standing up and fighting gendercide.
