I didn't see the 60 mins story, and I don't really want to.
I am against abortion, I believe life starts at conception, and I can't comprehend ending your unborn baby's life.
However, to me, selective reduction is the same as any other termination of pregnancy, I don't understand all the outrage about this when people don't bat an eyelid about abortion under other circumstances.
I believe we all have choice, as much as it saddens me that it is so accepted to terminate pregnancies, it is not up to me to make choices like that for other women.
I am pregnant with twins at the moment, I had it all worked out- I'd have my nice 'even number' family (stupid, I know!), now I'll have 5 kids, with no family support, a husband who is onboard sometimes, struggling with his job at other times, I'm part way through uni. When they saw twins, they initially thought triplets, and although I would NEVER actually go through with it, one of the first things that entered my mind was selective reduction. I was absolutely terrified as to how I would ever cope with 3 babies at once, as well as the three I already have, under the circumstances I parent under.
Again, I'd never do it, because I am very much against abortion, but the thought of triplets was so terrifying, it did enter my mind.
I'll always feel very sad for all the unborn abbies that were not wanted, but I'll never judge the women who made that horrible decision because I'm sure its never one taht is made lightly.
And 60 mins is full of crap so who knows the real story in these cases anyway.

FFS ladies, think before you type. There are people reading along who have gone through this procedure.
As for who is right and wrong, no one here has the right to judge.
I can't believe the ignorance and hatred being thrown around in here. Can we not be respectful of others decision even if they are not decisions we ourselves would make. Please.
