    I don't like it & would not do it. A life is a gift not the gender. I voted other as healthy is important to me & nothing else.

    Maybe on a case-by-case basis.

    Like if a family have 3-4 children of one gender that they can appeal to be able to have a gender selection in ivf.

    I really don't think abortion for gender selection is right

    I don't know though, it would have to be a highly controlled thing, and then who decides who deserves a boy or girl more than the other.

    I dont agree with it, I think if you want a child it shouldn't matter the sex you don't have children to have a boy or girl, you have children to make a family.

    Oh. My. God.
    That doesn't actually happen does it???? I mean you cant have an abortion after 20 weeks when you find out sex can you? I found out the sex at 15 weeks via a 3d scan but holy crap I didnt think you could have one even at 15 weeks.

    Cant help but feel really gloomy about that.

    I remember a story a while back don't know the ins and outs, but a family with 4 or 5 sons fell pregnant with twins and when they found out they were twin boys they aborted them

    We have 2 girls and my hubby would like to try for a boy, but I'd be quite happy to stop at 2, but I told him if they introduce gender selection in the next 5 years that we can talk more about having another one.

    Got any spare pillows?

    Yeah I believe the family had lost a little girl at birth and went on to get pregnant with twin boys (IVF?). They didn't want any more boys so they aborted. I'm not sure if there was a subsequent court case that said they could use gender selection to ensure their next baby was a girl - that part is fuzzy.

    Lemonhead, in Victoria you can abort up to 20 weeks without a medical panel.
    I was told to abort DD at 19w+5d after her brother died, since she was 'deformed' (in Victoria)

    You have a baby because you want a CHILD not a boy or a girl. I think its selfish to have baby after baby in hopes you will get a specific gender.
    My aunt has 5 kids. 4 girls and a boy. She kept going because she wanted a son. If she had him second she would have stopped. I don't think its selfish. the heart wants what it wants. She loves all her kids very much.

    I'm all for gender swaying. I say give them what they want.
