Letter from the Editor

In this issue we carry a debate between two specialists on a very controversial practice. Pre-implantational genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a technique which can be used to identify and reject foetuses with certain defects, and also for sex-selection of an embryo prior to IVF.

This practice has provoked criticism from rights groups in the West, who argue that PGD will promote discrimination against the disabled, and amounts to exterminating various groups.

When applied to sex selection PGD presents a host of complications. We place these discussions before you in order to learn your views and comments.
