An East China woman has died after she fell ill due to four abortions in one year because her husband wanted her baby to be a boy.

Quoting a newspaper report, South China Morning Post reports that her husband divorced her after she fell ill following the abortions.

The woman who is from a county near Wuhu in Anhui province, used the 170,000 yuan ($2,500) divorce settlement to seek treatment in Shanghai, but unfortunately, the doctors weren’t able to save her.

The report stated that her former husband did not visit her in hospital and is now planning to marry another woman.

The woman’s family was said to have carried her her ashes to the man’s house but he hid out at a neighbour’s place until they were all gone.

Traditional Chinese culture favours boys over girls but Chinese law states that doctors are not allowed to tell parents the sex of their unborn child. However unlicensed medical practitioners who operate illegally are said to inform women of the sex of their babies.

The report stated that she found out the sex of the babies through x-ray

    This is just sad. All this just to satisfy the man, and he ends up with another woman. Ladies, abeg no kill yourself ontop something beyond you. Let’s all be content with what we have, and be appreciative of our blessings. Girl, or boy…ALL NA CHILDREN. #finito.

    i don’t and i think i ever will understand people with such mentality that one child gender is above the other. man can’t give birth, if there is no girls then the human race will cease to exist. why can’t fools see that girls are more important. if we all have boy and then who will they marry. and we start again complaining of gays. oh Lord. enlighten them fools.

      You made a great point at the start, No gender is above the other however you went on to justify why the female gender is more important “why can’t fools see that girls are more important”. Both genders are important.

    I still dont understand why a male child is favored over a female child, the only sex God has equipped me to provide you with is female… if you cant provide the required chromosome for your desired male child… thats your business. Im already doing you a favor by bearing the pain of pregnancy, child birth and delivery… all you as a man had to do was shag me.. and half the time i didnt even enjoy it… so… whos even doing who a favor here
    Upon everything women have acheived over the years, despite the fact that its the female child that is genetically modified to take care of their parents till old age(most times)… some efulefu people will still want a male child over a female child
    Oya give me Y chromosome but No… u wee nau come and be disturbing sumborry
    Oya sebi u have nau carried blood on your head…
    Olori gbeske…. Anuofia…. Aturu ching chong
    Nigerian women any man that bothers you for a male child…tell the backward bastard to provide it
