The ethics of sex selection
The thought of women having abortions in order to choose the sex of their future children fills many with revulsion.

People who find abortion ethically problematic will want to see its incidence reduced. We must contemplate SD carried out by preconceptional means rather than abortion following prenatal diagnosis as it is only a matter of time before techniques of sperm separation are perfected.
