A new clinic in Manhattan is appealing to British couples who want to pick the sex of their next child — a process that is banned in the United Kingdom.
Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), which can reveal the sex of an embryo, is prohibited in Britain except when it is used to screen for genetic diseases.
The United States relaxed its regulations on sex selection in 2001 and American medical centres report interest from British patients who find out about their “family balancing” services through online advertisements.
OH MY GOD NO! WTH? I don't agree with this at ALL! So now we are creating embryos that we will just toss if they are the wrong sex? And is MY family "unbalanced" Because I have 2 dd and 1 ds? I would have loved another dd just as much! I am little afraid of what might end up happening with this much messing with nature! I don't see this as a christian vs. others...this is crazy! You?
