I want a girl sooo badly, but it doesnt mean i love my 3 boys any less? Makes me feel sick that someone could do that, not even taking into account the late termination.. Thats a whole other ethicsl issue
For those who are against it on the basis of when it is done (rather than the reason why), what if you could tell the sex of the baby earlier on in the pregnancy?
Say there was a blood test you could have in the first trimester that told you the sex, what then?
What about amniocentesis? How early can that test determine sex? Im sure its only a matter of time before early gender detection is available. After all 50+ years ago you couldnt find out sex till birth.

I've got another hypothetical to go along with Girl X's scenario.
What if you could have an early amnio test to test for things:
- eye color
- hair color
- athletic ability
- whether your baby would sleep through the night before 12 months
- whether your baby would look like his father, your ex partner?
Would it be OK to terminate your baby if it was not that smart, a bad sleeper, couldnt kick a footy and looked like your ex?
Just trying to figure out if there is a line of unethicalness past which pro-choicers think termination should be allowed.
Would it be OK to terminate for
Pregnant for the first-time?
