Dr. Jamie Grifo, program director for New York University’s Fertility Center, runs two clinics that do embryo screening. They allow couples to choose certain characteristics for their children. This process allows sex selection for couples who want a girl or a boy.
Dr. Jamie Grifo defends this by saying:
“For someone who has two girls and wants to have a boy, so each sibling can grow up with brother and sister, what’s wrong with that?”

Although this is not sex selection abortion, the fact that couples seek out Grifo’s services show that some parents want to control the sex of their children. Would these couples abort a baby of the “wrong” sex?Share on Facebook
