Womanish foeticide is one of the most sensitive and burning issues not only for India but for the whole world. It’s a general supposition that advanced countries with better knowledge rate may have better coitus rate but this supposition is questioned if one looks at the data.This process began in the early 1990s when ultrasound ways gained wide use in India. There was tendency for families to continuously produce children until a manly child was born. This was primarily due to the large sexist culture that exists in India against women. This is reflected by knowledge rates among women as well as profitable participation, which are both particularly low in countries where womanish foeticide is prominent, and an unstable population rate exists alongside. The government originally supported the practice to control population growth. The Preconception and Prenatal Diagnostic Techniques (PCPNDT) Act was passed in 1994, making coitus-picky revocation illegal. It was also amended in 2003 holding medical professionals fairly responsible. Still, the PCPNDT Act has been inadequately executed by authorities.
