Female foeticide has caused the number of male children to go up in Rupandehi.
A study jointly carried out by CIWIN Nepal and District Public Health Office, Rupandehi, shows that sex-selective abortion is widespread even among educated and well-off families in urban areas.
According to Rupandehi’s public health inspector Krishna Pokhrel, when 100 girls were born, the number of male births stood at 130 last year.
