A Chinese woman died after having four abortions in one year while trying to have a boy, the Blaze reports.
The woman was reportedly pressured to have the abortions by her husband.
According to local media, the couple already has a four-year-old daughter and the husband was insistent that their second child must be a boy.
In 2015, China scrapped their one-child police and now allows couples to have up to two children.
Local media reports that it is illegal in China for doctors to reveal the gender of unborn children because of the high rate of female infanticide in the country.
Any doctor telling a woman the gender of their unborn child is doing so illegally.
Local media reports that the woman’s health “deteriorated” after the terminations and her husband later divorced her because of her ailing health.
She tried to use the settlement money from the divorce to check into a hospital but later died.
The husband plans to remarry.
