Recently, i got a chance to talk to a gyne specialist who was
fostering a 24 year old pregnant woman. After our intense
conversation i knew i had to write about it.
Rayhana got married to a 40 year old man at the age of 16 and
has had 3 abortions just because she was nursing a female
fetus in her womb. She got divorced when she got

Where ultrasounds are done for the ease of shopping, yet
there are families who get it done to know whether its a girl

it beholds.? Or are we just hypnotised to take reverse steps
into the darkened past?
