A government sponsored sample study of 50 clinics in Mumbai done in this period revealed that most of them did amniocentesis for sex determination alone and in fact they promoted gender selection as a tool for population control. In my book Disappearing Daughters I quoted a Mumbai doctor who declared to a newspaper correspondent: ‘Emancipate the woman Make her important I hope their number decreases so that their status in society enhances’ Today amniocentesis can still be used for sex selection But the scan is by far the most widely used and misused medical diagnostic tool in this area It is non-invasive and accurate and less messy Every pregnant woman who visits a doctor is required to have a scan to ensure the heath of the foetus in her womb For gynaecologists the scan is a very important diagnostic tool which is used to ensure the health of the mother and the child in her womb Since many genetically inherited diseases are gender related diagnostic tests like amniocentesis scanning and now the new DNA blood tests are all also used to detect the sex of the foetus If the doctors and scan operators stuck to just informing the parents about the health of the baby there would be no problem But over the last 30-odd years that these tests have been available unscrupulous doctors technicians and others have discovered that these tests can be used for making money They are the ones who don’t care two hoots about the health of the mother or the child in her womb For them the woman who is brought to them for undergoing a sex determination test is just a conduit for milking the family for money The Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (PCPNDT) Act was introduced in 1994 When sex determination became illegal this underground “industry” gained in strength As the PCPNDT Act put more checks and balances in place these so-called medical professionals found other ways to escape the net The cost of sex determination tests also went up as they had to be done in secret The hapless woman would often be told that the child she carried in her womb was female immaterial of its gender because then they could also perform the illegal abortion at a higher cost Today all over the country child sex ratios continue to plunge In Maharashtra alone the CSR dropped by around 30 points in just 10 years?
