Should they be allowed to do this?

[deleted account] ( 4 moms have responded )

There's a couple in Australia who have three sons and have undergone IVF for another child in hopes to have a girl as they lost their daughter soon after birth. To their dissappointment they found out they were pregnant with two twin boys and aborted them! they now want to undergo IVF again and to choose the sex to make sure they have a girl. (http://www.news.com.au/national/desperat...)

Should they be allowed to choose the sex of their IVF child and more importantly should they even be allowed to have IVF after they aborted two babies based on sex?

Personally I believe they should not be able to choose the sex (After all you get what you're given right?) and I do not think they should be allowed to undergo anymore IVF purely because if they are not allowed to choose the sex they would more than likely continuing to abort pregnancies until they get their girl. There are many Australians who have tried IVF and it has not worked and would of loved to of adopted those what would of been two lovely baby boys

That is heinous!!!!!!!!!! No, they shouldn't be allowed to participate in IVF programs EVER again. Abortions should not be used as birth control and to abort babies based on sex is just vile and disgusting.

That is disgusting! I am absolutely disgusted that that is even legal in Australia!!!! (i'm from melbourne) :)
I am completely horrified hah
First of all, choosing the sex of a child is playing god. You get what you get, and if you aren't happy with what you're getting then what kind of parent or person are you? Either way its your baby and any decent human being wouldn't care either way! I mean, yes i wanted a girl, but as soon as i saw her on the ultra sound i said i don't care either way, because whatever she was, she was the most beautiful thing in the world to me.
I really feel sick about what they've done! I think there are tests you can get that can tell you what you are going to have? I'm not sure how it works but i know a couple who wanted a girl after having boys and did some kind of test that said they as a couple could only have boys so they went on to have another boy.
I think those people should go to the vet and get all their tubes tied up because neither of them deserve to be parents. I suppose if there was a really serious medical reason for it, like all boys in their family were severely deformed then that would be understandable, but even then they are murdering babies just because they are boys.
So no, they should not be allowed, and the we need a law that says if you have had IVF you cannot abort, unless for medical reasons. There really needs to be an abortion screening process so not just anyone can walk in and have one, I'm sure a lot of people don't get what they want and terminate.
I guess they would've had to get a special test to know what they're having so they could abort in time, because you can't find out until 18 weeks and you cant abort after 16. bastard low life people. i hate them.
