The concept is the parents decide to abort their baby because it is not the gender that they wanted. For example, they wanted a boy, but find out the mom is pregnant with a girl. Then abort the baby because it she isn't the right gender.
I am interested in what the pro-choice people have to say on this one. We all know what the pro-lifers opinion will be, right? = )
Do you think this should be legal?
Is it morally right?
Is it any worse than an abotion for other reasons?
Or is it acceptable and the parents choice?
Explain the reasonings you have.

It's a slippery slope. If a mother can consciously abort a baby because of gender, she has serious ethical issues. No one I care to associate with. I am sure there will be some progressives who may even want taxpayer money to fund someday... Slippery slope...

This is already a slippery slope. First off, I will say that I am pro-choice. Whether I agree with abortion is not relevant to another woman's circumstances. I don't believe in legislating morals, as this fails miserably.
The fact is, I am sure it already exists here. A woman can have a late term abortion if she has a medical reason for it. 'Medical reason' is not defined. Women can say that they are suicidal, or have PPD or depression that causes anxiety. Whatever the reason. And because abortion is a business, there will always be someone that will oblige the request.
I don't believe in abortion due to gender preference, but I also don't need to take that burden with me on judgement day.
