Doctor fights female feticide by delivering baby girls for free
“It’s a girl.” The three words struck terror in Jaya Sable’s heart when she gave birth 10 years ago. That’s because her husband and his family badly wanted a boy. They didn’t even visit her in hospital. Instead, Jaya was punished when she came home for not bearing a son. Her husband and in-laws beat and harassed her for months.
