Sonographer asked about sex-selection abortion

The Sydney Morning Herald had an article about a sonographer who was asked what sex the baby was. The parents intended to abort if the baby was a girl

The sonographer says:

“They said something along the lines of ‘We need to know the sex, because if it’s a girl we are going to terminate it’,” they said.

You have to deal with things like terminal cancer and miscarriages when you’re working as a sonographer. But this occasion, it still sickens me to this day.”

From the author of the article:

As was the policy of their employer, the sonographer did not tell them the sex at the first scan, although they were so shocked by the incident, they can’t remember if they noticed if it was a boy or a girl.

From the sonographer:

“I did wonder for some time what became of that baby.”
