    Is Female infanticide and Female foeticide still in practice?

    If yes, what are the necessary steps taken to curb this evil practice in the society?

    Yes, it IS still in practice. 

    I happened to be searching youtube for some information on another writing research project  and stumbled across a documentary video called "The Dying Rooms"  (a 4 Part Series) about orphanages in China where baby girls were taken when their family had abandoned them.  It was one of the most "eye opening films" that I've ever seen.  It was truly horrifying.

    The only films that have depressed me more, were animal slaughter house videos put out by PETA.

    It was a very tough film to watch.  They take an undercover camera behind the doors of the orphanage and pose as a group looking to adopt, then start firing away at all of the scenes that they encountered... children strapped for the full day to a row of potty seats, a baby left in a "dying room" to starve to death.... I'm telling you-- this film captured things that were truly graphic and totally inhumane. 

    Seriously, EVERYONE should see this!

      Oh I cried reading this... In China as well...
      When my son was born, I heard a small bay girl crying. I asked the nurses, why is she always crying..
      They said she had been abandoned at the hospital.

    Oops I didt finish...
    The baby girl was left behind by her parents because she had a faulty heart.
    They said they couldnt afford her care.
    What crape.. The hospital is expensive to take treatment in. If the parents could afford why couldnt they afford the baby?
