Stop torture, and rape of women in India. What kind of a nation allows its women to suffer so much and do nothing to the criminals??
I think certain countries just have these cultural traditions and rituals they continue doing even though they're ethically untenable. They let a rapist off the hook but murder a woman who shares a bed with a man not her husband, what hypocrisy is this? Each country is different, unique, but some things are just wrong, always. Like this.
All life is precious...No exceptions.
I agree. I've been ridiculed however, concerning the death "penalty", for sociopaths who will always kill unless they're killed. Killing killers. What kind of logic is that? Yes, all life should be allowed to exist, and if you take a life you should be left on an idland to fend for yourself.
This MUST STOP!!!
It happens to over 1 million women every years, in Africa, the Middle East, India and Pakistan. Also behind closed doors in Western Countries. In Africa, the legal profession is offering protection, under human rights laws and that's slowing down FGM there. Long way to go.
We need to stop this NOW!
First: Organize. Second: Lay out your strategy and plan of action. Third: ACT ON IT.
This makes me very, very angry. There are women all over the world that can't have children, and the government there is letting this happen? Put these babies up for adoption. You obviously are all men(government), you are sick people. This should stop now. Or give your bloody men VASCETOMIES so they can't produce PERIOD.
India's glorious past is being besmirched by this atrocious social practice. Where are those social thinkers. Wage a relentless campaign both at the practitioners and then the social institutions like the temples,welfare organizations and the government.
Shame on the parents of India for killing their baby girls shame shame shame the world is watching. Shame on the government for not doing more.
Could it be that some mothers are so unhappy in an arranged marriage that maybe they don't want another to suffer?
There is no excuse for murder! No excuse for a Government that allows these atrocities. These people are barbaric
Generally a mother do not kill her baby for whatever reason, and this applie also fopr most of the animal - at least domestic ones. Having said this your argument is still a negative one, since two wrongs never make one right.
Hello Michael. Lesley Brough only asked a question, not made an argument. She examined it and made a suggestion, which makes her more informed. We have to question things like this to learn how to educate people enough to see it's ethically wrong for the human species. Ethically, not scientifically. In my opinion, it's not for religious reasons not for personal reasons but for simple survival of our species. Then looking at it from a personal, heart-felt angle, it's truly...

In my opinion, it's not for religious reasons not for personal reasons but for simple survival of our species. Then looking at it from a personal, heart-felt angle, it's truly heart-breaking - women are murdered all the time, even as babies. It's horrendous but in some places, it's a cultural matter. Thank you for letting me share with you.
Thank you for realising that I only meant it as a Question but not a condoning of genocide in any form.
