So I am  in shock and awe at this story that comes out of Australia about this couple aborting their twin boys.  You’ll have to read the full story here for all of the details.  But in a nutshell this couple has three boys already and they had a little girl who died shortly after she was born.  So they decided to try again and got pregnant with the twin boys and aborted them because it wasn’t a girl. Now they want to try sex-selective IVF so that they can have a girl. 

I know that some people feel very strongly about the sex of their child, but to terminate a pregnancy until you get what you want is beyond me.  Things happen in life all of the time and we may not want it to happen, but there is a time and season for everything (Ecclesiastes 3:1). 

What do you think about this couple’s decision?
