Unwanted as she’s a girl, she was abandoned at the hospital

01 November 2014 Krishnagiri, Tamil Nadu

A few hours after her birth her parents left her with the nursing staff and checked out of the hospital. The police are trying to trace down the parents, but would it be a good idea to hand her back to them given they don’t want her as she’s a girl? There is no law in India that prioritizes the safety of girls who are unwanted to protect them from their parents. 1 million girls are killed in India up to the age of 1 year, and another 7 million are killed between 1-6 years.
