If implementation of better techniques and new strategies are required to provide more efficient care and assistance to people, then why is there a statutory ban on amniocentesis? Write the use of this technique and give reason to justify the ban.


#2

Amniocentesis is on such technique that helps to determine any chromosomal abnormalities or genetic disorder and sex as well as fetal infections, by using minute amount of amniotic fluid, surrounding the foetus.
Though implementation of better techniques and new strategies are required to provide more efficient care and assistance to people, there is a statutory ban on amniocentesis to legally check female foeticide. This ban is necessary as this sex determination technique has been misused to kill girl child before birth.
The ban is justified to prevent female foeticide which could lead to change in sex ratio of the population.
