In India today there are millions of missing girls, with official statistics showing just 90 girls born for every 100 boys. One reason for the fall in the number of girl children is the spread of ultra sound technology, now frequently, and illegally, used to detect the sex of girl foetuses, which are then often aborted. Some of the lowest child sex ratios are found in India’s wealthiest states, like Punjab and Haryana.
