Most medical terminations from what I have read are because the child has a condition that is incompatible with life and will not survive, or will have to suffer too much pain and not live long. I don't think that can be compared to aborting a healthy child because of gender.
As for what happens in a LTA (non medically required) after 24 or 25 weeks there seems to be no agreement. My focus isn't on the theory but what happens in real life (as hard as it is for me to stomach).
I had a 31 week prem and had my tubes tied during the section because my chances of having a micro prem ( and doing a lot of damage to myself) was extremely high. I couldn't handle the thought of putting a baby through that.
I'm sorry if this offends.
