    Yep I thought this, it seems she's pushing the blame onto him for the decision?

    Both her & her husband are revolting. I would not be calling anyone who thought that terminating a pregnancy based on gender was okay a friend.

    It is absolutely disgusting & I wish I could unread this thread. If I knew anyone who was talking about this I would have absolutely nothing nice or supportive to say, I would be telling them how feral & undeserving they are in some very colorful words.

    Children are a privilege not a right.

    Maybe he needs a biology lesson if that is the case, given that he is the one pumping out the X sperm! I wonder how many times they would be willing to go through with the termination? Given he has 6 girls...maybe he is only making X sperm? I could easily see this destroying their marriage. Very very sad indeed. A healthy baby is a gift.

    Is there any state in Australia that doesn't require a Dr referral for a termination? I done think your friend has researched this great place of hers very well.

    Can they afford to do gender selection via IVF in another country? Not sure on the price but I know it's not illegal in many countries.

    Whats more concerning is if this dna test is wrong and it ends up being a girl after all is this baby going to be resented? Treated like a mistake? I dont even know the legalities of late abortion can you even have one at 20 weeks when most of us find out the sex if its confirmed then this home kit dna test was wrong? Or does a late term abortion only occur for medical reasons.

    This is disgusting. I've heard of some stories in my lifetime but this one takes the cake. Some people really don't look at the big picture of life. They should be overjoyed with having beautiful healthy normal daughters. I understand the yearning to have a particular gender (as I have 2 gorgeous boys) but at the end of the day you should be so incredibly grateful to be given the gift of life when so many others struggle to have that opportunity (or are faced with children who have sickness or other issues).

    I'm horrified by what This couple are planning.. Makes me feel sick tbh.

    I haven't read the other replies but I think this is just really awful. If it were my friend I don't think I'd be able to support them. Sorry but its just really not right!

    If gender is so important to them then I think they've really lost the meaning and beauty of what a gift children are. Gender is so insignificant anyway. What if he's not a 'boyish' boy? Will they be disappointed? Geez Louise
    Yes, this exactly. What if the boy is quite feminine? Are they going to disappointed with what they have essentially 'ordered'. Ugh.
