Why not a girl ?

A day back I was returning from my morning walk and I heard a conversation between two women ( Probably educated illiterates ) . The conversation is as follows .

First one : " You know Mrs X had a girl " .
Second one : "Poor X why didn't she had a abortion "
First One : " I heard doctors never let you know whether you are going to
have a boy or girl .Otherwise who wants to have a girl "
Second one : "Yeah , it will just act as burden to their family and nothing
else "

These kind of conversations still can be heard in our society even in a part of educated families which is absolutely pathetic . I don't understand why girls are still considered a burden to the families of these people . People should always understand that giving birth to a girl is a contribution to the society where Male : Female ratio is increasing . If the ratio continues to increase further , a day will surely come when men start fighting for girls . Girls are soft and gentle , but they can survive easily in the present world of opportunities . There are enough jobs for women . People need to understand every job is not done by a person who is tough . There are some jobs which can be handled better by females and they are doing it. I have seen ladies who contribute well to their families and who have been successful . I know girls who even went big in their life and those who are on the way to go bigger . They are never a burden to us instead they are assets which need to be just managed .
I know no illiterate is going to read my blog , but still may be someone among you educate someone among them . Sometimes its good to write about some noble cause .
Don't think of killing girls , Remember you are born to a woman .

I'm totally shocked by that dialogue, I never thought girls can be considered as burdens to their families... What nonsense! I haven't heard anything more stupid than that...
