Latest News on Infanticide
Paa Lo Naa’s Appeal
Infanticide is the intentional killing of infants. Parental infanticide researchers have found that mothers are far more likely than fathers to be the perpetrator of neonaticide and slightly more likely to commit infanticide in general. But that alone does not contribute to rising cases of infanticide in India. Since infanticide, especially neonaticide, is often a response to an unwanted birth, PaaLONaa appeals to parents, police & judiciary, medical practitioners, media, government, and to society to help create awareness. We, as humans have a specific role to play if we desire to curb infanticide in near future.
Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA) is a statutory body of the Ministry of Women & Child Development, Government of India. It functions as the nodal body for the adoption of Indian children and is mandated to monitor and regulate in-country and inter-country adoptions. CARA is designated as the Central Authority to deal with inter-country adoptions in accordance with the provisions of the Hague Convention on Inter-country Adoption, 1993, ratified by the Government of India in 2003. CARA primarily deals with the adoption of orphan, abandoned, and surrendered children through its associated or recognized adoption agencies.
