Foeticide or feticide is primarily a legal issue referring to illegal killing of a foetus. In medical terminology, foeticide is termination of a foetus. It might occur during the initial stages of a legitimate induced abortion. However, the issue of foeticide normally assumes legal connotations in countries like India where female foeticide is on the rise alarmingly. In the context, cases of foetal homicide or fetal homicide are running rampant among the ignorant cross-section of people in India. Foetal homicide is as reprehensible a practice as other forms of violence against women. It is an issue closely related to violation of not just women rights but more importantly, of human rights. It is a shame for any progressive nation that a male child is given preference to a female child and consequently lives are literally nipped in the bud in front of the wide open eyes of an indifferent society. If you think that you are a progressive minded human being, you have no other option but to raise your voice for these unborn victims of violence. Let www.bestindiansites.com be the guide in your fervent protest.
