Girls as young as one are being forced into sex change operations in India by parents desperate for a son.
Surgeons in the city of Indore are reported to be 'converting' hundreds of girls a year, who are pumped full of hormone drugs.
A report in the respected Hindustan Times newspaper said the 'shocking, unprecedented trend, catering to the fetish for a son, is unfolding at conservative Indore's well-known clinics and hospitals on children who are one to five years old.
'The process being used to 'produce' a male child from a female is known as genitoplasty.'
Indian society places a strong value on producing a son and heir, with daughters often seen as an expensive burden to be married off.
Sex determination tests during pregnancy are illegal in India to try to prevent the common practice of women choosing to abort female foetuses.
In some states such as Punjab the ratio of women to men has dropped as low as seven to ten.
Wealthy parents from Delhi and Mumbai are reportedly flocking to Indore, a city in the centre of India, for the relatively low cost £2,000 treatment to surgically 'correct' their daughters.
Parents have allegedly pressed for the surgeries despite being told by doctors that the 'converted' male would be infertile.
The procedure involves doctors 'building' a penis using tissue from female organs, with the child then being fed hormonal medicine.
Seven genitoplasty experts in Indore boasted each of them had turned 200 to 300 girls into 'boys' so far, with only one being older than 14, the legal age of consent to such an operation.
Another Indore paediatric surgeon performing the procedure, Dr Brijesh Lahoti, said, 'In India, there is no problem in performing these surgeries as only the consent from parents and an affidavit is required.

Desperate? Don't they breed like rabbits over there? (1.21 billion people). Plenty of sons in most families. And unlike China, there are no per family restrictions in India. ...at least not that I know of.
But that aside, this is one of the sickest things I've ever read.
Here's my experience in life. Females really are expensive assets, but every one has had a very positive influence on me (grandmother, mother, wife, daughter).
My Grandmother, who first exposed me to astronomy, used to say: "A son is a son until he takes a wife. A daughter is a daughter for the rest of your life."
I bet there will a lifetime of pain
for these “corrected” children
And about those male heirs...
Do they really believe there will be grandchildren?
Which is worse — the parents who subject their daughters to this, or the medical professionals who do the job?
And we’re supposed to believe all cultures are equal?
Just when I think I have seen it all......
you think that is sick. Think about how much it cost them to perform this surgery in a country that the citizen doesn't make all that much money.
My question is how many are killed in order too make room for another attempt?
Leftist are helping Islam making it so.
The world has lost its mind.
Obsessed Parents devoid of Love
Greedy “Doctors” mutilating normal anatomy
Is that’s what happened to this guy?
I’ll ping it in a bit. Ultra hatefully repulsive.
And, btw, this is entirely sinful and any religious Hindus would be totally opposed to this.
