Response to Female Feticide
In India, a proposed nationwide network of orphanages would take in unwanted girl babies. This is a merciful response to the symptom of the problem, but it does not seek to treat the problem itself. Some radiologists and obstetricians in India oppose female feticide vocally, while others oppose it silently.
What distinguishes female feticide from the problem of abortion in general is a lack of due respect, status, and freedom to women in society. Therefore, the Orthodox Christian response to female feticide must involve changing the way society envisions the relationship of women and men in the home and in society. As women's status increases, female feticide will decrease, and as increasing the status of women will likewise decrease the practice of female feticide.
