Adoption--they choose girls!

You might be interested to know that, in the US, 85% of adopting parents choose girls if they have a choice! It is not the same here as in China!

I have never met a woman who would abort because of the baby's sex.

We do not have the same culture or values of those in China or India. I have never met a woman in this country who would abort because of the baby's sex. Ever. My feeling is that it is very beneficial to know the baby's sex, in advance. Then, if you do have a preference for what you are not getting, you have time to adjust, accept, and so not have this preference influence your absolute love for your baby.

Missing the obvious?

Male or female, the child created inside the womb is created by God. Parents don't have the right to choose to kill it.

Gender Selection

I do not feel that the government should control this, I feel it is up to the parents. BUT for me personally, unless their was a grave disease that would specifically affect one sex and not the other I would not go down the gender selection road. When it comes to babies, you get what you get and you should be happy for it.
