I was appalled and disgusted to read that hundreds of dead newborn girls have been discovered in Pakistani rubbish dumps.

Reports indicate nearly 350 were found dead in Karachi with 99 per cent of them being girls.

This is truly heartbreaking and belongs in a primitive age - it is scarcely believable this is going on in the 21st Century.

There are no words to describe the horrors of these discoveries. How can we still be living in a world where people of some cultures 'prefer' to have boys?

There is no doubt in my mind that the international community has to put pressure on Governments and cultures to educate and inform so this practice is stopped and gender beliefs and pre-conceptions are forcefully challenged and altered.
