I think it has more to do with having to pay a dowry for girls and having sons to care for you in your older age.

Ironic considering that in the US the daughters typically do more of the care-giving for elders.

I don't know whether or not this story is true, but if it is true and if this decision of hers was not coerced, then I myself am tempted to consider it to be morally justifiable since I don't consider embryos and fetuses to be persons. Thus, why exactly should I care as to what exactly the reason is for why a woman gets an abortion?

A commenter mentioned her story is eerily similar to the plotline of American Horror Story: Asylum, where a character named Lana is featured.

I hope this is just a made up story.

Default Sick: woman aborts late term fetus because it was male

Although I can see both sides of the abortion debate, and generally stay out of it, this is an example of something that is truly sick, and I don't understand how in any way shape or form it is ethical, moral, or legal.

Has a woman aborted her baby because it's a boy? - Telegraph

Here is a link to the actual blog posting she made, which may or may not exist by the time you read this.

http://injusticestories.com/i-aborte...-it-was-a-boy/

I have nothing but disgust and revulsion against any individual who so little values a life that has developed to the point of self-sustainability, because of her own misguided viewpoints. This is not an abortion in the first trimester, of which I might be supportive otherwise.

If it is truly "her body, her choice" there is no reason whatsoever that abortion can be unethical, immoral, or illegal. The entire point of elective abortion is so that a woman who is inconvenienced in some way by a pregnancy doesn't have to go through with it. So why is it ethical and moral to abort if you got pregnant right before you were making a career move or were just about to buy a new house but unethical and immoral to abort based on the sex of the baby? If elective abortion is ever unethical or immoral at all, does it not follow that elective abortion is always unethical and immoral?


It's sick to abort a child because it is of a sex you didn't prefer, but it's okay to abort a child because you got pregnant at an inconvenient moment? Where are the ethics in that?
