    The only thing I find as disturbing as their 'reporting' is the judgement in this thread.

    I feel blessed that we live in a society where we have atonomy over our own bodies regardless of the opinions of others.

    Its a slipperly slope.
    Although it was extremely confronting and I was emotional. I do agree.

    And how many women don't want babies and are on all sorts of contraception but still keep falling pregnant? We have a right to abort and to complain just as much.

    I totally agree, lets stop playing GOD and stop doing IVF.

    yeh it was, and i don't think I would do it, but I would have to consider it for medical reasons - that MY line in the sand, but doesn't mean that's where everyone elses line is.

    real freedom and choice means accepting ppl's decision even if you don't agree with them.

    Someone close to me lost one of their twins during pregnancy, she says she looks at her son every day and thinks about his brother.

    I just can't comprehend how you choose one and not think about it every time you see their twin/triplet.

    Well I tried to find a diplomatic answer to this but everything I type will just get me banned.
    So let's just say I strongly disagree. There that's diplomatic.

    I dont think there is anything wrong with ivf? I think its great to have such a choice. But the people who go through it to abort? Thats crazy to me, and the playing god comment is in relation to these particular women, who arnt doing ivf anyway. But the families that want to pick sex/eye colour/hair colour. It scares me.

    I havent watched this, and will not be.
    Only one of my twins made it earthside. Every time I look at her I think about her brother. Every birthday I choose a present that I think he would have loved. Every December I mourn the day his heart stopped beating.
    How someone can chose between their children I will never understand.

    No, they terminated a foetus, still a life, and still an ending.

    I watched it and it was very very confronting. I don't think they should have showed the baby and the needle, I'll never get that image out of my head I never want to see a life end like that, especially a happy, healthy little beating heart

    It was obviously a pro life agenda with the way the questions were asked, also interesting they didn't show an Australian woman who has done this, maybe for their safety? They obviously expect the outrage.

    I don't live in other peoples shoes and I can't say what people should do in regards to this. Imo technically or not, it's abortion and many many women have abortions for all sorts of reasons including the ones these women had, this is our choice and right. Is it something I would choose? No I don't think so, but I'm not going to judge someone else who would.
    I got pregnant wanting 1-2 kids and getting pregnant with multiples would be a shock, hard financially, it's not as easy as a singleton so I'm sure I'd think about all the negatives.
    And not to mention risks involved with the pregnancy and their health which you wouldn't know till much later in the pregnancy or when they're born prem.
    It's all sad really, but it's a women's right to choose and that's not sad, it's important it's preserved.
