This hardly meets the "Hapless victim of a brazen fetus" test, but it's still being painted that way: Why our next child must be a daughter.
This couple has three sons. Their baby daughter died. So they turned to IVF to replace the girl. They ended up conceiving and implanting twin boys, which they aborted.
They want to skip the implantation part and just have the embryos tested next time, flush the males and implant a female.
You can't claim the "hapless victim of biology" argument for aborting the boys.
I've argued before that the "I don't want that fetus in my uterus" argument is akin to a kidnapper arguing that he has a right to kill his hostage because she's in the trunk of his car. The woman's sexual activity, after all, put the fetus there in the first place. And abortion advocates have cried foul, saying that the sex act, unlike the kidnapping, was intended for other purposes, and the fetus sort of sneaked. But in this case, the couple put the twins there at great trouble and expense. So it's more akin to a kidnapper killing the prostitute in his trunk on the grounds that he found out she was actually a transvestite and he'd wanted to rape a woman, not a man.
Is this couple the victim of some horrible injustice that they have a right to correct? Or do they just need to buck up and live with the fact that sometimes life doesn't give you what you want?
