In India, prenatal gender determination of the fetus is illegal, because many women prefer to abort if they carry a girl.­

Women prefer to have boys since they can more easily work and bring revenue to the family.­

Women are still very much discriminated upon in india, and they are considered "inferior" to men in many respect.­

In India, no laboratory or clinic is allowed to conduct any test including ultrasonography for the purpose of determining the sex of the fetus.­

Prenatal sex determination was banned in India in 1994, under the Pre-conception and Prenatal Diagnostic Techniques (Prohibition of Sex Selection) Act. The act aims to prevent sex-selective abortion, which, according to the Indian Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, "has its roots in India‚Äôs long history of strong patriarchal influence in all spheres of life".­
