Female Infanticide in India

Akhir-akhir ini marak terjadi pembunuhan bayi perempuan di India. Memang bayinya tdk dibunuh setelah lahir, tp saat masih dikandungan setelah dapat dideteksi jenis kelaminnya. Kenapa mereka membenci bayi perempuan, hingga sekarang kelahiran bayi di India khususnya Delhi menjadi lebih sedikit dari laki-laki. Ternyata ada beberapa alasan sulitnya perempuan untuk diterima dikalangan sosial India, a/l adlh sbb (baca artikel terkait di OhmyNews):

1. Investment in a daughter's education is viewed as fruitless as she will eventually wed.
2. Indian society prefers fewer children so a son who carries on the bloodline is seen as more valuable than a daughter.
3. Employment chances are better for men.
4. The burden of a dowry discourages parents for having girls.
5. Technology is used to determine fetal sex.
6. Daughters will eventually leave their parents; sons will take care of them.
7. Freedoms for women, such as pre-marital sex, can lead to loss of honor in society.

Fenomena tersebut mendorong beberapa ibu turun ke jalan memrotes aksi yg jelas-jelas dilarang agama manapun ini. Mereka (bayi perempuan) juga menginginkan kehidupan, dan semua rizqinya sudah diatur yang Diatas. So, no reason to kill them..
