I find it abhorrent that someone could have such little regard for life they have created based on their genitals
I'm pro choice but I admit I find it exceedingly hard to understand a parent that would abort purely based on gender. There are some of us that just want a baby period, and it hurts that others would terminate based on a childs bits
I definitely understand the want for a certain gender. My DH and I are about to embark on trying to naturally sway for a girl. Thing is although I long for a little princess we have always said 4 kids and if we have 4 boys then that was the way it was always meant to be and I will feel so blessed to have all of them.
I disagree with late terminations unless on grounds of medical reasons and I do believe the laws in Australia shouldn't allow it past 12/13weeks. Sure pro choice but surely u can make up your mind before you get to the 2nd trimester.
I also agree that perhaps the laws in Australia should change in allowing people to gender select through microsort or ivf and that may limit late term abortions for this reason. It's extremely expensive so not something decide on a whim.
I am pro-choice. Even in this circumstance.
I think the alternative of having a baby that wasn't loved or wanted is just as abhorrent, whether the decision was made due to sex of baby etc. is really irrelevant to me.
I know my opinion isn't popular.
I am pro choice. But if people choose to abort based on the sex of the child they don't deserve the privilege of being a parent.
I am all for pro choice but aborting at that late stage for gender choice is just disgusting.
