Baby girls dying in India

Just saw this report on the BBC web site.

More and more baby girls are either being aborted during pregnancy or left to die once they are born in India, because boys are so highly valued. The proportion of girls to boys is declining drastically.

The implications for the nation and for women is frightening.
