Vereema, Serial Baby-Killing Mom – India, 2012


Excerpt from an article about infanticide in general: “35-year-old Veeramma at Rajendra Nagar, who is pregnant for the eighth time and who, according to her neighbours, has already killed four girls, just avoid going to the PHCs for pre-delivery care, to escape “official” attention. Or, they claim that the dead babies were male.”
