Summary In Indian tradition, the economic burden of dowries and the ancestral preference for boys make the birth of a daughter a shameful event. Ultrasound tests and abortions - medical acts which were supposed to represent progress for women, are instead being used against them. This film looks at the reasons why some Indian parents choose to get rid of female babies. (From Canada in English, Hindi and Punjabi, English subtitles) (Documentary) MA (A) WS.
