Dr Argent also disclosed that he believed that some colleagues had arranged terminations relating to the sex of the foetus and they felt it was reasonable to do so.
“I’ve had a consultant colleague in the North who expressed a view — that consultant was from an ethnic minority … He didn’t think it was ethically wrong because he thought that the cultural reason why some communities may prefer to have four male babies is as good a reason as the, if you like, the Anglo-Saxon cultural view, \’Well I’m pregnant, I just don’t want it anyway.’? ”
As we know, I disagree with the basic view but this is at least a logical statement.
It\’s the you can if you don\’t want it but if you don\’t want it because it\’s female you can\’t that is illogical.
