Brief Answer:
Procedure is risky and can cause a complete abortion.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
I have gone through your query and understand your health concerns.
Selective abortion of one or two fetuses can be done with the help of ultrasound guided injections but it is a risky and invasive procedure and poses a definite risk to all the babies. It can cause a complete abortion also. It is best to avoid taking such a risk.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
