8) Five years ago, you gave life to twins after ten years of struggle to get pregnant. During those ten years you had prospered professionally and reached a high position in career growth. In the beginning you found it very difficult to manage children and work. Thankfully your husband who ran a business had sufficient time to look after them. He had encouraged you to take independent decisions and supported you to grow well in your career. After the birth of your children, doctors had told you that you would no more bear children in future due to certain medical condition. Few days ago when you consulted doctor, you came to know that you are in third week of pregnancy. You were happy with two children. It is now impossible for you to manage one more child due to professional commitments. You do not want this child and you want abortion. But your husband who is very fond of children and extremely happy knowing that you are pregnant, wants this child. He insists that you should not resort to abortion. Your friends suggest you to go ahead with abortion as you already have two beautiful small kids and don’t need another one at this stage. But your husband is unhappy with this decision and also thinks that ethically it is wrong to terminate pregnancy.
