Parents From Bihar Refuse To Donate Kidney To Save Their Child’s Life Because ‘She Is A Girl’
A young girl has been fighting for her life at the government hospital in Bihar, after both her kidneys failed. In a heartbreaking and shocking revelation, the girl’s parents have refused to donate their kidneys to her, only because she is a girl child.
Yes, it is 2019, and a girl child still has to suffer because of her gender.
Kanchan Kumari is a resident of Avgil village under Sadar block in Sheikhpura district. She appeared for matriculation examination from a local government’s girl’s high school. She was ecstatic when she found out that she had cleared the examination with first division.
Doctors recently told the girl’s parents that both of her kidneys had stopped functioning and she urgently required a kidney transplant for her to survive. Her parents did not have enough funds to finance a kidney transplant, so they took her back to their village, where she has been abandoned by her parents in a critical time.
The doctors at IGIMS have told the family that even after paying Rs 5 lakh for the surgery, there is no guarantee that the girl will survive.
The father, Ramashray Yadav said, ” Who will donate his/her kidneys? She is a girl”.
The parents have allegedly expressed no interest in saving their daughter’s life. Nor have any other members of the family stepped forward to donate their kidney. Without any help, Kanchan is bound to lose her life.
