So, what's the problem?

A news item from India -- Maharashtra: Doctors in Beed feed aborted female foetuses to dogs
Some doctors in Beed are disposing of female foetuses by feeding them to dogs in order to destroy evidence of female foeticide.

The shocking revelation was made by Varsha Deshpande of Lek Ladki Abhiyan, an NGO working against the practice.
Why is this "shocking"? Why are people carrying on as though such activity is wrong, as though it were sin, or at least criminal?
