Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee


A fetus was aborted.

‘It was a male,’ the doctor commented!

Being unable to feed more than one child,

the innocent parents became inhumane and wild.

They did not want to see their aged son

dying out of starvation or suffering from malnutrition.

Here poverty is the killer,

not the biased attitude over gender!

Thanks a lot for you comment.

A good write.

A sad story in this day and age to have to choose to be able to feed one.
