Called “selective reduction” in this disturbing story
. Later: …some obstetricians and their patients have turned to selective reductions even in the case of twins -- not necessarily for medical reasons, but because the couple does not feel emotionally and/or financially prepared to have two babies when they had planned to have just one.
You have to ask: Why not wait 'til they're born, then kill one? It's much safer that way.
