Babies in a well

“In the vicinity of a private hospital in Patiala district, a 30-ft-deep well yielded 50 dead foetuses, all female. The location of the well near the clinic was not accidental. For, clearly, despite the PNDT Act, the aborting of female foetuses continues virtually unchecked. The ‘unacceptable crime’ is still flourishing…”

From Babies in the well by Kalpana Sharma.
