What a weird, wacky and sadly pathetic story…
A husband (72 years old) and wife (59 years old) who traveled to India for the wife to receive IVF (in vetro fertilization) treatments were disappointed when the wife delivered twin girls in London. The couple was unhappy with the girls because they wanted a boy to carry on the family name. Sources are telling several news outlets that the couple said they did not want the “wrong sex babies.”
The only logical solution – abandon the girls! NO JOKE!!!
The wife checked herself out of the hospital against doctor’s orders and the husband inquired how soon the wife could try IVF again.
Some news sources have begun to point out that due to privacy laws related to reporting on minors, the story has not been fully substantiated; however, at this point the basic framing of the story appears to be solid.
If the story IS true, I am thinking that both parents should be publicly flogged and left chained outside for a month or two, to be the subject of mocking and derision by passersby.
And if the story isn’t true, I still have to wonder about the motivations of a 60 year old woman and her 73 year old husband wanting to be parents at this time in their life.
