Misuse of Technology

While ultrasound can be an effective technology in examining internal body parts, and even to find the condition of an unborn child; this has been used for abortion test in many developing countries where the gender bias is still on.

While abortion is legal in most part of the world, its really sad to know how the technology is being misused to carry out unhuman activity. Hundred of thousands of abortions of abortions are carried out each year depending upon ultrasound results of whether the unborn child is a girl or a boy. How pathetic!

I also came across this story of a weird looking child who died immediately after his birth. I'm not sure about the scientific reasons behind such child birth, but the child somehow looks more like a frog than a human.
