(c) What is sex selective abortion? How does it affect a healthy society? (State any one consequence)
Condom is a contraception used by males. Use of a condom is beneficial for both the sexes involved in a sexual act because:
- It reduces the chance of unwanted pregnancy.
- It protects a person from acquiring sexually transmitted diseases.
Oral pills contain hormones which stop the ovaries from releasing ovum/eggs into the oviduct thus preventing the fusion of sperm with egg and preventing pregnancy.
- Sex selective abortion is the method of terminating a pregnancy based on the predicted sex of the unborn baby. It is especially common for female foetuses.
- It affects a healthy society by creating an imbalance in the male to female sex ratio.
