It is no more question of whether it is possible to choose the child’s sex but whether it is ethical or not to do so.
Fertility clinics already use pre-implantation genetic diagnosis to select healthy embryos if a child has a high risk of inheriting a genetic disease, but this technique can also be used to select the sex of the embryos.

Us fertility clinic has been approved to start a trial on affects of letting couples choose the sex of their babies. The decision has been under consideration for nine years and the study has been finally allowed by an ethics committee. The purpose of the study is to find out how cultural notions, family values and gender issues feed into a couple's desire to choose the gender of their child.

Fertility specialists are already receiving inquiries from couples about joining the trial. Eligible are only those couples who have already had one child and want another of the opposite sex. Health of the children will monitored as they grow up as well as any social issues that arise in their families.

While the US gets the green light, Europe strongly disagrees and says selecting sex for social reasons should never be permitted as this would mean that one sex is preferable than the other for the couple.


While gender selection has now become a scientific possibility, some moral questions do remain.
