Can You Choose the Sex of Your Child ?
Technology Is Available But Ethical Questions Persist !
I think this depends on the heaven.
It is possible, but having children is not of question of shopping for what you want, but a random choice of what your child should be !!!!!
This is a hot topic in modern medicine, but I question the general opinion on this subject.
Many oppose the idea of choosing the sex of your future child. They explain this by stating it’s unnatural and therefore wrong.
Tell me this then: what medical intervention is natural? Modern drugs, artificial heart valves, vaccinations, respirators, catheterisations, anesthesia, in short: everything in medicine is unnatural. But they don’t oppose any of these things, do they?
But not just medicine, practically everything you use is man-made. Every flower, vegetable, the cattle and your fruits: it is all crafted by man, specially bred or improved to fit your special needs.
New things scare people. People tend to overreact. You know what people said when the first railroads were constructed? That the cows in the meadows would be so frightened of the trains that they wouldn’t produce milk ever again. And the people’s reaction when the first IVF was performed? That people would never have kids in the natural way anymore, and that children would be sold on markets. And what did the people cry out when genetic modification was introduced? That in the end this would be misused by creating ”˜Hitlers’, or ”˜the perfect kid, just like you’d want it’ (which would be very bad for some reason). Has anything of that happened?
My point is that people often have foolish reasons. If we should not be able to choose our child’s sex, how would you rationally explain this then? And if choosing the sex of your child would be interesting for some people, and you don't have to be a part of it if you don't want to, on what ground should we ban this option?
children of either sexes worth a lot..there should be no discrimination in my opinion
i will not do that
