Another tragic report of female infantcide occurred in the India.  A newborn baby girl was found wrapped and buried in yet another case of female infanticide that is sweeping India.  Due to the monetary value of boys and the burden often felt by the parents of girls, India has rates of infanticide and foeticide on the rise.  Female foeticide, the act of aborting a fetus because it is female, is a major social problem. A UNICEF report in 2006 revealed that 10 million girls were killed - either before they were born or immediately after - by their parents from 1986 in India.  Last year, the medical journal Lancet stated that 500,000 girls in India were being lost annually through sex-selective abortions.  A recent study found 500,000 unborn girls were being aborted every year. A UNICEF report in 2006 revealed that 10 million girls were killed - either before they were born or immediately after - by their parents from 1986 in India.

In this case, the baby girl was found alive but died the next day do to her injuries.  There are no leads at this time of  who the mother was.
