I don't like it & would not do it. A life is a gift not the gender. I voted other as healthy is important to me & nothing else.

Maybe on a case-by-case basis.
Like if a family have 3-4 children of one gender that they can appeal to be able to have a gender selection in ivf.
I really don't think abortion for gender selection is right
I don't know though, it would have to be a highly controlled thing, and then who decides who deserves a boy or girl more than the other.

I dont agree with it, I think if you want a child it shouldn't matter the sex you don't have children to have a boy or girl, you have children to make a family.

Oh. My. God.
That doesn't actually happen does it???? I mean you cant have an abortion after 20 weeks when you find out sex can you? I found out the sex at 15 weeks via a 3d scan but holy crap I didnt think you could have one even at 15 weeks.
Cant help but feel really gloomy about that.

Yeah I believe the family had lost a little girl at birth and went on to get pregnant with twin boys (IVF?). They didn't want any more boys so they aborted. I'm not sure if there was a subsequent court case that said they could use gender selection to ensure their next baby was a girl - that part is fuzzy.

Lemonhead, in Victoria you can abort up to 20 weeks without a medical panel.
I was told to abort DD at 19w+5d after her brother died, since she was 'deformed' (in Victoria)

I'm all for gender swaying. I say give them what they want.
