Abortions are being done now, not for medical reasons, rape or unwanted pregnancies.  Abortions have added a new category.  Gender abortions.  Do you agree or disagree on this type of abortion.  I just saw the movie What to expect when you are expecting.  One of the couples were told they were going to have a girl and they actually had a boy.  So, if they wanted a boy and was told that they had a girl then got an abortion.... see my point. ( well don't answer that, that was something to think about).  I want to know what you think about gender abortions.  btw - I am  pro-life.

*ADDED AFTER ORIGINAL POST

I was telling my dh about the post. He said to ask do you agree with Dread Scott decision? When slavery was legal, they said blacks were not people and did not have any rights. My point, they weren't in anyone's uterus. This is our problem. When we say not my uterus, not my problem. It is our problem as a whole society. It sends out a message how we little we view life.

I don't agree with gender abortions but that doesn't mean no one should be allowed to have one. I support the right to choose, period.

I wish it were not even something we as human beings would consider.

That's been going on in China for many many many years. I seem to recall there was an issue in India as well.

Still the parents' choice. It's better than exposing the child to the elements, which is what they used to do.

it is something that has hit the news hard recently...and from the reports this morning...it is very popular in certain cultures...even here in the US.  It has been done in CHINA for years but it has come to roost here now as well.

I don't understand the thinking behind them at all, but its not my place to say what is right for someone else. Their body, their choice.
