School Educating IVF Technicians Promotes The Ability to Choose Gender

From the blog of The American Institute of Medical Sciences & Education:

In some cultures, not getting the “right” gender can have serious repercussions. It can alienate certain family members and even cause feelings of resentment toward the child’s mother. In the past, this has lead to parents seeking out various and sometimes drastic methods to influence the gender of their unborn child.

Hell no!

They feed it:

Luckily for some parents, having a child with your desired gender no longer depends upon the will of a capricious deity; there is no need to bribe the delivery stork either. Modern technology now offers couples a variety of ways to influence their offspring’s gender.

Then they go on to list the various methods of determining sex before implantation. Which, of course, this facility trains people to do.
