Normal people who are expecting a child are delighted to see the baby in an ultrasound, especially when the baby appears healthy, but sadly, this was not the case for a Pakistani woman who was pregnant with her third child. After the ultrasound revealed that she was carrying her third daughter, "Aliya's" husband and father-in-law chained her to a door in their home, and tried to perform an abortion by injecting her with poison, and when that failed, they brutally beat her. Neighbors who heard her screams went into the house to rescue her and were also attacked. By the time the neighbors were able to get Aliya out of there, she was in labor and gave birth in a car en route to the hospital.
*the name of the victim was changed in the published story for her protection.
