    I agree. I only said that because I don't agree with someone saying if you agree with one form of reproductive technology you should embrace every aspect of it. Personally.. I find the idea of what these women did, or rather, the reason.. just .. wrong.. but yes its not our choice to make and it can't be that women can only access terminations if their motive is "good enough".

    Ahh...good ol' judgement day.
    I knew it wouldn't take long for that to be used as basis to waggle a finger in the direction of another woman's reproductive rights.

    Well if you prefer I can do all the judging instead.

    Again, I have not seen the program as I can't stand to do so. I first thought they were aborted for medical reasons only, which I can understand. Yet when I came onto BH I found that there were some who aborted for non medical reasons like believing a human should have 1 child and not a litter.
    It is THIS kind of reasoning I do not agree with. It is THIS kind of reasoning I will judge for you if you are not a Christian. Simple.

    Believe what you want. We all have stated our opinions and you now know where I stand, so I am unsubscribing from this thread

    I'm pretty sure any of the above mentioned "conditions" only happen in a handful of cases and not each and every case. I am also pretty sure the above mentioned "conditions" can happen to single pregnancies too.

    Now if it was medically guaranteed that these kids would end up with disabilities, than yes abortion is an option. As I stated before, for medical reasons I do understand. But if it is not guaranteed or if there's not a high risk, than I believe there should be no abortion.
    If you think you can't handle raising 3 kids, maybe make another childless couple happy by offering the 2 other bubs for adoption. That should be an easy choice as these women seem to be unattached to their bubs anyway, hence the abortions.


    Again, this is my opinion and I wont change it regardless if you want to make fun of Christianity or not. I am unsubscribing. Have a great evening ladies and gents

    Didn't see the show. From what I gather here it promoted an element of fear mongering re any and all types of ART, and what they are unleashing onto the world! I can just see that anyone who knows I'm going through IVF will now feel within their rights to scrutinize me (more), as I'm one of those types involved in something that others don't know too much about, so obviously can't be completely "right". Can't wait for tomorrow's conversations

    FWIW my heart breaks for anyone who's gone through selective reduction. No matter how others present it, it has to be a devastating situation to be in.

    While you are spouting christianity, i guess the risk of a disabled child is enough of a reason to be ok with an abortion? Plenty of kids have disabilities and are loved by their parents. If it's disabled, its ok to terminate, but not for any other reason. Very interesting.

    Any multiple, especially triplets is always high risk and many are born prematurely and with problems. Is this enough of a medical risk? I find it very interesting that you talk about "judgment day" but you are willing to draw your own line in the sand.
