This is what happens when we start thinking about children as being some sort of “right” or commodity, there to satisfy an innate “need” or craving.
If you disposed of a puppy or a kitten in a similar fashion you would end up with a fine or jail sentence and almost certainly be banned from ever owning a pet again.
But because it is children that we are talking about they are automatically treated as being some sort of property of the mother, her body and thus to do with as she sees fit, including killing them because they are the wrong sex.
And we as a civilised society sanction this, we validate their behaviour by succumbing to their destructive tantrums and concede that a child is a right not a human, but take this contortion of natural law one step further namely, not only is a child a right, but a parent has a right to a child of a sex of their choosing?
What better illustration can there be of the paradox of IVF, whereby the process of creating new life has destruction of life as its by-product?
But so long as nobody is offended or hurt, a child is produced who will be loved, that makes this all acceptable does it? The ends justify the means?
I’d like to hear from anyone who thinks that this is in any way acceptable.
