Newsweek has a fascinating article on new technologies that allow you to pre-determine the sex of your baby.
Now, aside from the that-takes-all-the-fun-out-of-it aspect, there are a couple of quotes that bother me:
As for MicroSort, of the more than 500 pregnancies achieved so far, four have been terminated … because of “non-desired gender,” says Blauer.
This should bother even people who are for abortion, because it is a means of gender discrimination.
“The more it’s done,” she says, “the less you’re going to see concerns.”
Repetition doesn’t make something right – there’s more sex, violence and foul language on TV now, largely through a matter of repetition until it becomes the norm. Does that make it okay?
