Choosing Boys Over Girls

This is an interesting piece that discusses the rising trend of sex selection in the developing world. Many families are choosing to terminate pregnancies when they learn that they are females with modern ultrasound technology. This makes one wonder what the perception of girls are in societies where they are being prevented from existing. What will the environment be like for the girls that are born? How will they feel when they find out that others like them are commonly rejected before being born?
