Horrible sad loss

I can't believe that a couple here in Australia, actually from my own State, although it doesn't matter where they are from could think that this is OK, God only knows what was going through their heads when they decided to terminate their twin boys after undergoing IVF just because they were boys and they had already had 3 boys! I understand that they lost a daughter just after her birth and they appear to want to chase the dream of having a daughter, but to terminate healthy babies, not only after paying a great sum of money for the IVF system, knowing that we do not allow gender selection unless it is for medical reasons, they still went ahead with the IVF option which would have given them a 50/50 chance of a boy or girl. Why not place them for a adoption if they didn't want them, don't just throw them away, like they didn't ever exist. My brain just can not fathom what they have done.

The story from our newspaper is here.

Wow. That's wrong on so many levels. Karma will not be kind to them.

That is horrible...like wanting to kill your dog because it doesn't go with your decor (yes the actual vet told me what happened). I am so sorry, this must be crushing to someone who has been so terribly wanting a child. Goes to show that people should get psych evals before being allowed to have kids.

Oh my goodness!! That is *horrible*! That is just a horrible abuse. They don't deserve to have any more kids, and the article says having a daughter is vital to her psychological health? I'd say she has some serious psychological problems and Lord help the daughter should she ever get one. Yikes.

You're right..that is unfathomable.

I can't even let my brain go there. I can't even think about this because I don't have room for that amount of anger. All I can say is that they will pay for that choice.
