[Ed. – The couple was suffering from infertility and ultimately went through in vitro fertilization to conceive. And now that it’s happened, they have decided to abort the two males, partly because in the woman’s words ‘to be honest, I’ve always wanted girls.’]
The woman said she and her husband struggled to get pregnant for years and eventually went through in vitro fertilization to conceive.
“Fast forward. We find out we’re pregnant and we are super happy, like over the moon ecstatic,” she wrote. “We couldn’t wait for the 12 week mark to tell people, and started working on a nursery right away.”
During a recent pregnancy scan, however, the couple learned that they are expecting quadruplets: identical twin girls and two fraternal boys.
“Four. That’s insane,” she wrote.
Though the babies are healthy, she said they are seriously considering aborting two of them, specifically the boys.
While her husband agrees with her, she said other family members got upset when they shared their plans. She said she is “heartbroken,” and she wonders if she is an “a——” for wanting to abort her sons.
