By all means, India (and I'm sure several other countries not named in this article), let's starve girls to death after the government tells you you can't abort them. Preserve your archaic, illogical, and cruel culture at any cost. Coming together to eliminate the unjust dowry system and other illogical societal norms so that your daughters can live and your sons can benefit from everything women have to offer is just a nonsensical idea posited by evil, liberal feminazis bent on destroying your way of life.
And is outlawing informing the expectant parents of the sex of their unborn child really the way to go here?? If these people are willing to starve their daughter to death in lieu of getting the abortion they'd prefer, dear god, let them get the fucking abortion!!! Saving that poor child from the pain and suffering of starvation is much more humane.
Indian government, while your busy outlawing stuff.....how about outlawing the dowry's? And actually enforcing the laws. That would go much further than trying to force your people to have daughters in a system that punishes them for the bad luck of having a faster swimming x chromosome. I would think that it would be worth the cost of a special task force specifically to shut down these practices so that you don't end up like China.

One last thing India, when you kill enough of your girls, your beloved culture is going to come to a screeching halt. If you don't produce enough girls to marry into your system, you won't be able to sustain it. The majority of other cultures are not going to pay your sons to marry their daughters.
