Post subject: OMG I JUST READ THIS!!!!!!
A couple who travelled to India for IVF treatment dumped their newborn twins at a British hospital when they found out they were girls.

Reports said the mother, 59, and father, 72, travelled to India for fertility treatment that would not have been allowed in Britain because of their age.

The parents, who were born in India but are British citizens living in Birmingham, reportedly told doctors they did not want the "wrong sex" babies immediately after the children were born by Caesarean section in Wolverhampton's New Cross hospital a fortnight ago.

The newspaper says the husband then asked medics how long it would be before his wife was fit enough to fly back to India for more IVF treatment in the hope of getting a boy to continue the family name.

It was reported the twins have now been transferred to a central Birmingham hospital, where they have not been visited a single time.

A spokeswoman for New Cross Hospital said she could not make any comment because of "data protection reasons".

Birmingham Council's social services department said it is investigating.

Countries such as India are known to display a cultural preference for sons

you think thats bad, In Sheffield when my mum was preganat with my little brother, so 89, they wouldn't tell you the sex of your baby at your 20 week scan, because some women from ethnic backgrounds were terminating their pregnancies themselves, by methods I don't want to tell you because they found out they were carrying girls.

I don't get it at all Confused

Thats awful - they should just be happy they conceived at all. People like that don't deserve children!

That has made me feel physically sick. How disgusting. You hear those kind of stories from China where they drown their kids at birth if they're the "wrong" sex. People like that should be dumped on a cold outer hebridean island with no food, love and left to fend for themselves and see how they like it xxxx

though it is sad, those children will be a blessing for someone. perhaps those who cant have themselves. i was watching an adoption programme on sky last night and you could see those adoptive parents who have had so much joy from having children.

that realy is disgusting-the people from these ethnic backgrounds must realise it takes 2 to tango, i bet they dont want their precious sons marrying out of their ethnic backgrounds -if there are no girls will they be happy to accept a white daughter in law when their baby boys become men. its crazy.

i just read that previous reports of them leaving their baby were incorrect and that the babies are safe and well at home with their parents and that the local authority (social services) are not involved.
