IVF twins dumped because they're girls
By STAFF REPORTERS
A BRITISH couple abandoned their newborn IVF girl twins at a hospital – because they wanted boys.
The mum aged 59 and dad, 72, conceived in India with fertility treatment and returned to England for the birth. They told horrified medics they did not want the “wrong sex” babies immediately after the Caesarean section in Wolverhampton.
The husband then asked how soon it would be before his wife was fit enough to fly out again for further IVF in the hope of getting a boy to continue the family name.
An NHS insider told The Sun: “Everyone is utterly appalled. How could any parent do this?
“This is Britain in the 21st century.
“But they just weren’t prepared to raise these two beautiful girls.”
Female babies are often abandoned in India for being the wrong sex – but it is the first time here. It will send shockwaves of revulsion through multi-cultural Britain.
The parents were born in India but are British citizens living in Birmingham.
They had fertility treatment in India as it is illegal here at at such an advanced age.
