Misplaced foetus

Foetuses are now found in garbage bins instead of a mother's womb.

Shocked..??

You won't be surprised if you have already read today's newspaper. 14 foetuses were found inside the garbage bin.

I mean, who does that mean? Where are we heading?

Isn't sex determination a crime in India?




This incident took place in the labour locality of Bapunagar Area in Ahmedabad when an anonynous telephone caller informed the police of the presence of foetuses in the garbage bin. The foetuses were half eaten, perhaps by stray dogs.

I will not be surprised if this is the case of female foeticide.

However, when I read more about this, I found that half of the foetuses were of males and half of females.

Perhaps, this is the ill-doing of some unauthorised practitioner.

Does it mean that we must check the qualification of the doctors that we go to. Maybe, not just check just verify whether the degrees do exist or is it a hoax.

social issues like this need immediate attention... i think, an issue like sex determination is more important than "what going into SRK's life or when would Aishwarya Rai Bacchan conceive"...

i am happy, u discussed this on your blog.

I was so disturbed when I heard this yday. I mean really, whats happening? Don't people even think twice of what they are doing. It's a life dammit!

Education was supposed to be the remedy to all ills. But, female infanticide is a harsh reality and cuts across class. Haryana and Rajasthan have a very high rate of infanticide. And its hard to believe that with high rates its impossible to to track down culprits. But, sadly the govt authorities and some real sick doctors are in play helping the circle go on!

This is disgusting. Its not a crime, its a sin. And its not about the authenticity of doctor's degree, the highly qualified doctors at famous hospitals are such too.

And look at the people who go for such operations. Haven't they heard of a thing called condom? Why not use it than killing a life after it has been conceived????
There's a huge need of spreading this awareness in our country.

@ Sid : well, 'she' isnt sleeping too much... 'he' met you, didnt he..?? :D

Chanz said...

@ Maria : Hmmm... Is quite sad.. I was devastated when I read this.. This is insane... Foetuses being found in the dust bins.. Disgusting..

Chanz said...

@ Shivani : absolutely... infact, a whole lot of improvement along with awareness is needed.. that too fast... If this carries on then I am afraid, we will not be able to trust any doctor.. A doctor's profession is a kind of profession which requires immense trust and if such illegalities take place, then we will be deprived of doctors in future..

Very disturbing and alarming issue... I wish we can have strict measures in India to control this.... A disgraceful issue...

subu.ps said...

Read this news in todays paper and this post made me feel sad. How can people be like this and what was the motive?

sepo said...

really shaken up by the pic

Kedar said...

Important issues like these need public awakening... Media should spread the awareness about such social issues... Oh wait.. They have more important news items like detailed reports on Sania's wedding and in-depth analysis of every word SRK utters....
S.A.D.

Chanz said...

@ surbhi : Absolutely..

Chanz said...

@ Subu.ps : No clue.. Which we knew about their motive.. why in the world would anybody throw them.. If at all these foetuses are aborted, there must be some other way of disposing them off..

Chanz said...

@ Sepo : :( I know.. Too sad..

Chanz said...

@ Kedar : These days newspapers are filled with bull shit.. It is a no longer a means of informing people of things which genuinly need to be shared... Sick..

Chanz said...
