    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.
    This.

    As heartbreaking as it is giving rights to an unborn baby is not something I could ever support, in fact it terrifies me.

    Watching it now...

    BH ate my post , darnit.....
    The reason why I am against this is because I am a sole surviving twin. I lost my sister in utero, and I would give anything to have spent my life with her. That loneliness you can't describe it. There is something very special about multiples, and I think it should be treasured, not discarded.
    Everyone is going to have a different opinion on this, it will all come from their own experiences, and sharing thoughts and ideas may broaden the view.

    very emotive use of words there.

    But that's how some people feel.
    So is it only certain people who can have an opinion.
    Thats how she feels to her it is what it is and if I'm perfectly honest I feel the same way.
    Freedom to choose fine but there is also freedom of speech and opinion. Think my opinion is crap that's ok but when you go on 60 min you surely must expect a raw reaction.

    It is absolutely no different to terminating a single pregnancy because you decide you don't want it, or the pregnancy was unplanned.
    Plenty of people plan to get pregnant and then at a later stage decide they don't want it. Due to divorce, medical complications etc. even those who did IVF.
    I am disgusted that some of you seem to think that just because a lady does IVF/ iui, she has no rights to terminate. That she should be thankful for whatever she is given. She has just as much right to terminate as anyone else.

    60 minutes are scum. Sensationalist "journalism" that incites judgement and hatred.

    Please be mindful that there are many, many women on this forum that have had terminations and some have had to make the choice to terminate one of their multiples.

    For me it's just that surely when you decide to have three embryos implanted the thought would have to cross your mind that you might have three viable babies? Why have three transferred if you are so philosophically opposed to triplets?

    To those posters who make broad sweeping comments about IVF without having gone through it, firstly please consider how hurtful your comments can be, and secondly, make sure you know at least some if the science behind it before commenting.

    I don't know. Maybe the doctors told her the chances of triplets were one in one thousand? Maybe she thought she could handle it but then changed her mind?
    Doesn't matter, it's still her choice.

    I copied this from a friend:
    Perhaps we should applaud these brave women rather than judge them. Would we actually prefer they gave birth to these babies and then tossed them in the rubbish or shook them until their brains hemorrhaged? Of course not.

    exactly. People WILL have their own experiences - but projecting them onto someone else and labelling them as 'disgusting child killers' simply isn't fair.

    No one commented on how lovely this mother seemed to behave with her child, dancing with her in public, she obviously loves her daughter very much.

    (Reading up on multiple pregnancies when I was pregnant with twins - research has shown that apparently 50% of pregnancies start off as 'twin pregnancies'...not sure what my point is other than, nature 'selectively reduces' pregnancies all the time)

    I too wonder what it is that makes people see this in a different light than other terminations? - is it that a 'choice' has to be made between what fetus continues growing and which one doesn't?
