In May 2009 Mitu Khurana became the first woman to file formal charges against her husband under the Preconception and Prenatal Diagnostic Techniques Act. She accused her husband and his family of having tried to force her to abort her twin female fetuses. When she refused to abort the fetuses, she was harassed, starved, and beaten. After giving birth she left her husband’s home when her mother-in-law physically harmed one of the twins. Khurana filed the complaint after her husband filed for divorce. Supporters of Khurana claimed that a high court judge asked her to drop the case and settle with her husband.  160058

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.
