Would you like a son or a daughter?

Gender disappointment and gender selection aren’t new concepts and have been mentioned in texts as early as the time of prophet Abraham (a) some 4000 years ago.   This is where the gender of one child is preferred over another and subsequently any children that aren’t of the favoured gender are aborted or murdered.  After the birth of my third daughter I noticed so many people were devastated for me.  One person this week excitedly told me that if we hold off on having our next child the Australian government will soon be allowing IVF gender selection for people...
