How Far Would You Go to Select Your Baby's Gender?

Nov 6 2008 - 2:00pm

There are near endless myths about ways to determine your baby's sex [1], but most of you seem skeptical about seriously trying to influence your baby's gender [2]. That's not a universal truth — news from Britain says a growing number of couples are undergoing procedures at clinics overseas [3] to determine the gender of their babies.

BBC recently captured footage of Londoners [4] at a Turkish fertility clinic that guaranteed if pregnancy occurred it would be of the chosen sex. Doctors can determine the sex of a baby using IVF and a type of embryo screening called pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD). Sex selection is illegal in Turkey and the UK, so the clinic in question is now under investigation.
