A new ethical debate in fertility clinics

The technology is there, so should fertility doctors help their patients specifically have a boy or girl?  The New York Times explores the issue.

Professional groups say sex selection is allowable in certain situations, but differ as to which ones. Meanwhile, it’s not illegal, and some doctors are already cashing in on the demand.

Is this “family balancing,” or sex discrimination?
