Recently the NY Times ran an article on mothers who are carrying twins who intentionally abort one of the fetuses and carry the other one to term and raise the child.

So as seen thru an LDS prism……. is this morally acceptable?

I vote no. Full disclosure I have a set of twins that were our third and fourth child born in 4 years. So yeah I am biased. Spare me the idea that its just to much work to have a set of twins and one of them should die.

It seems to me to be the ultimate in an abortion for Birth Control. I can’t imagine doing this and looking at the surviving twin and not feeling horrible guilt about the decision to kill the surviving twins sibling
