Berlin (idea) – Die Abtreibung ungeborener Mädchen gehört in Indien zum Alltag. Wer sich trotzdem für die Geburt einer Tochter entscheidet, lebt gefährlich. Das berichtet die in Berlin erscheinende linksalternative „tageszeitung“ („taz“). Indischen Studien zufolge seien in den letzten 20 Jahren zwölf Millionen Mädchen im Mutterleib getötet worden, weil ihre Familien lieber einen Jungen wollten. Seit den 90er Jahren können Familien in Indien mit dem Ultraschallgerät frühzeitig das Geschlecht ihres ungeborenen Kindes bestimmen und ließen dann die Mädchen abtreiben, so die taz. Nach Angaben der Vereinten Nationen fehlten dadurch heute schon 85 Millionen Mädchen allein in Indien und China (wo es aufgrund der Ein-Kind-Politik der Staatsführung zu massenhaften Abtreibungen kommt/d.Red.). Der Bericht zitiert die Vorsitzende der Nationalen Kommission für Kinderrechte in Indien, Shanta Sinha: „Die Motive für den Mord an den ungeborenen Töchtern entstammen einer sehr zeitgemäßen Einstellung – man will große Hochzeiten, große Geschenke und einen stolzen Sohn, aber keine wirtschaftlich unnütze Tochter. Es geht um eine Brutalisierung der individuellen Einstellung zum menschlichen Leben, wie sie erst die Modernisierung hervorbringen konnte.“

Mehr Opfer als bei Hitler oder Stalin

Der Bericht schildert auch das Schicksal der 34-jährigen Ärztin Mitu Khurana, die gegen den Willen ihres Mannes Zwillingsmädchen gebar. Sie verklagte ihren Ehemann wegen des Mordversuchs an seinen eigenen ungeborenen Mädchen. Dazu die taz: Sie ist „die erste, die vor Gericht gegen ein millionenfaches Verbrechen aufbegehrt, das fast alle verschweigen.“ Nachdem nach einer Ultraschalluntersuchung feststand, dass sie zwei Mädchen bekommen würde, habe ihr Mann sie zur Abtreibung aufgefordert, so Khurana. Dies habe sie verweigert. Daraufhin habe ihr Mann sie zu Hause eingesperrt und ihr kein Essen mehr gegeben. Um eine Fehlgeburt zu provozieren, habe er sie zweimal die Treppe herunter geworfen. Zudem habe die Familie ihres Mannes gedroht, die Töchter nach der Geburt zu ertränken. Khurana gelang es, zu ihren Eltern zu flüchten und gebar die zwei Mädchen, die heute sieben Jahre alt sind. Der Ausgang des Prozesses gegen ihren Mann ist noch offen. Die meisten Verfahren in Indien dauern zehn Jahre oder länger, so der Bericht. Mit dem Prozess gegen ihren Mann will Mitu Khurana vor allem auf das millionenfache Unrecht der Abtreibung aufmerksam machen: „Wir töten heute mehr ungeborene Mädchen, als Hitler oder Stalin an Opfern verursachten. Aber hier in Indien schreit niemand auf und niemand wird dafür bestraft.“

Berlin (idea) – The abortion of unborn girls in India is part of everyday life. Anyone who still opts for the birth of a daughter living dangerously. The report, published in the Berlin left alternative “taz” (“Taz”). Indian studies have shown that over the last 20 years, twelve million girls have been killed in the womb because their families would rather a boy. Since the 90s, families can determine early on in India with the ultrasound the gender of their unborn child and had an abortion then the girls, the taz. According to the United Nations lacked in today alone 85 million girls in India and China (where it is due to the one-child policy of state leaders to mass abortions / named file.). The report quoted the chairman of the National Commission for Children’s Rights in India, Shanta Sinha: “The motive for the murder of the unborn daughters come from a very contemporary setting – you want big weddings, great gifts and a proud son, but no economically useless daughter. It is a brutalization of individual attitudes to human life, as she could only bring about the modernization. ”

More victims than Hitler or Stalin

The report describes the fate of the 34-year doctor Mitu Khurana who bore against the will of her husband, twin girls. She sued her husband for the attempted murder of his own unborn girls. These taz: she is “the first, the rebels in court against a million times crime that conceal almost all.” Once after a scan it was clear that she would have two girls, had her husband asked to have an abortion, so Khurana. This it refused. Then her husband had her locked at home and given no food. To provoke a miscarriage, he had twice thrown down the stairs. In addition, her husband’s family had threatened to drown her daughters after birth. Khurana was able to escape with her parents and gave birth to two girls who are now seven years old. The outcome of the proceedings against her husband, is still open. Most procedures in India to take ten years or longer, the report said. With the trial of her husband Mitu Khurana wants to direct your attention to the millions of wrongs of abortion: “We kill more unborn girls today than Hitler or Stalin caused to victims. But here in India nobody cries and no one is punished for it. “

This is a coverage of my struggles to save my daughters.I am thank full to my parents not only for Not killing me ,but also helping me save my daughters... My dream- A big shelter house for women who want to give birth to their daughters and raise them up with dignity and self respect , but have to fight their own families to do so. Will have medical facilities and facilities for legal aid. will have training centers for vocational courses so that they can stand up on their own two feet and stop the dependency on their husbands for finances, A child care center run and managed by the inmates, A kitchen and a vegetable farm run and managed by the inmates. At present only a dream.... But with grace of God will become a reality. God will show the way and means to achieve the dream.

  1. I read so much about this important issue in blogs, through NGO’s including yours. What surprises me is that you all have so much to say, …..almost seems like elite drawing room discussions now shifted to net-chat rooms ! It would be good for a change, to know, if you have a strategy / action plan to bring some change and punish the perpetrators of this crime…frankly all this information that you keep repeating is getting so boring, and do you know why ? Because what u say on your blogs, we already know, IN FACT everyone does. You may think people who are indulging in this mal-practice need sensitization and jargon of words / statistical data is going to change their attitudes just like that 1 What you need to do is help bring out those who are committing foeticide to books and get them punished.We need fast track courts for it and some strong action. Words , really are not enough.

    1. Hi Nidhi.
      Please look up Dr Mitu Khurana in google search to know that I AM TRYING TO BRING CULPRITS TO BOOK. In the process I am being treated like a culprit. I also want that all PNDT cases should be sent to fast track courts. and all those who do the crime should be punished, rather than women like me, who dare come and complain.
