U.S. clinic offers British parents the opportunity to choose the sex of their child

From Mail Online:

British couples are being offered the chance to choose the sex of their child in a U.S. clinic.

The controversial practice – known as pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) – is banned in this country, except in cases where it could signal genetic disease.

Fifty per cent of the embryos currently being tested in Dr Jeffrey Steinberg’s New York clinic are said to belong to Britons while another four will undergo testing next month.
