When we started Daughters are Precious campaign, the question we faced was that is it possible to stop female foeticide? It is the general thinking that it is a societal problem and the law, or a judge, or an IAS officer cannot do much to stop it as people do it within the confines of their homes. We may accept it in a social gathering that female foeticide should be stopped, but we hardly take any action to stop it. We need to ask ourselves two simple questions — have we taken any concrete step to stop it? Or were we ever associated with female foeticide?
