What do you think about having abortions for the sole reason of the fetus being female? Particularly, if [I would guess most] abortions of this type would be done after the first trimester?

Myself: I'm prochoice. But when I heard about my friend's aunt, who already had 3 girls and was 4 months pregnant when she went to get her female fetus aborted in China, I was very disappointed. I felt that my same friend's baby sister would never get the chance to have a cousin so close in age. They could've been best friends. I thought it was really sad that the fetus lost this opportunity to live. And the only reason it was terminated was because it was going to be a girl. It wouldn't have posed a financial hardship, but would've made the house a little more crowded. It's been a year and I still can't shake this feeling of wrongness out of me.
