For the first time since 2011, demographers blame sex-selective abortion for the imbalanced boy-girl ratio around the world. Results from a study released this month estimates that from 1970 to 2017, sex-selective abortions resulted in about 45 million missing baby girls.
The majority of those would have been born in China and India, demographers from the University of Southampton in England concluded in the study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
