Should you be able to choose the gender of your in vitro baby?
Recent ads for in vitro fertilization state that you can select the gender of your baby, apparently by fertilizing several eggs and only “keeping” the zygote of choice. How do you feel about this?
If this is a copy of an actual advertisement it makes me wonder if the ads are directed to the Arab world.
If you got the cash, would you buy a Jag if you really wanted a Mercedes?
If the GOP wins the upcoming presidential elections this question will be completely immaterial. They have just decided to pass laws that state life begins at conception. If this concept is made into national law (it already is the law in some states), fertility clinics will have to be closed down. Otherwise, if they fertilize several eggs and pick only one to use, they will be charged with murder for killing the remaining fertilized eggs. (fertilized eggs now have the status of personhood)
Wow. the illogical logic of the GOP always amazes me.
So, the answer to your question (according to republican logic) is an emphatic NO - there will be NO choices for parents at all. There are many bills currently introduced in legislature that also makes any type of contraception illegal - and that even includes abstaining from sex during the fertile periods for women, in order to practice birth control.
