Bioethicist defends parents' right to choose their baby's gender
Dr. Edgar Dahl, bioethicist and senior research fellow at the
medical centre of Geissen University, Germany, argues that sex
selection should be permitted in the UK. Based on his extensive
research on gender preference among parents in many countries, Dahl
refutes the common misconception that gender selection could lead to a
sex ratio imbalance. He cites a survey which found that the
majority of British couples would like to have an equal number of boys
and girls, and the remaining couples didn't have any gender preference.
It is simply untrue that all people who would like to choose the
gender of their children are motivated by the sexist belief that one
sex is more valuable than the other.
