“They were saying that if it was going to be a daughter they would like to have it terminated. In the second case the couple had three girls and they were very keen to find out the sex of the foetus because they did not want to have the fourth child as a daughter”.

"And when I saw them about 8 months later, I asked them about the pregnancy and they told me that they had gone to India on a holiday and unfortunately the lady miscarried. Now it’s quite possible she miscarried but I had a very strong suspicion that that pregnancy was terminated because it could have been a girl”

He told his story to SBS Radio.
