I read this article this morning. I think this issue is part of a much bigger issue that the vast majority of us in Australia are pretty much oblivious to. The fact is that in many parts of the world, having a girl is nothing to celebrate unlike having a boy. In many cultures girls are not cherished, they are considered a burden. Some cultures don't even count girls when asked how many children you have (so I would say I have one child as I have 1 son and 1 daughter). Baby girls may be abandoned to die purely because they are girls.
We are very lucky to live in a country were abortion on the grounds of gender is met with such opposition. I don't mean that because I am anti-choice (which I am most definitely not), I mean that because in Australia, for the most part we would celebrate equally the birth of a boy or girl.
