Female Genocide in India

For many this is unbelievable. The Nazis eliminated about 6 million Jews. But in India, in about three generations, more than 50 Million Women have been eliminated from India's population.

They have been eliminated at every stage of life. Why have girls and women been selectively annihilated in India? For the same reason that genocides happen anywhere in the world. Because female are considered inherently undesirable and yet usable (as reproductive machines) and disposable. This is misogyny at its worst.

The 1948 U.N. Act against genocide clearly states that the selective killing, torture, and prevention of birth and continuity of a group is genocide. India right now, accounts for the worst genocide in Human History. And it is silent. And it is ongoing. Please read the article below on India's female genocide and support our campaign by signing and circulating this petition http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/stop-female-genocide-in-india.html
