Americans Not Interested In Choosing Sex Of Child: Survey

dergo an average of three to five cycles of intrauterine insemination at a fertility centre, at a cost of approximately $2,500 per attempt.

The survey found that while the majority of respondents would not choose the sex of their child under these trying conditions, most would still not use the technology even under less demanding circumstances.

Only 12 percent would use sex selection technology if it were available in any doctor's office, if it required only a single cycle of intrauterine insemination, and if it were covered by health insurance.

Even if it were possible to choose the sex of a child simply by taking a 'blue pill' for a boy or a 'pink pill' for a girl, only 18 percent of respondents indicated they would do so. The rest were opposed or undecided.

'Perhaps this speaks to the fact that people still want to leave things up chance and not rely on science for everything,' said Jain.

In an earlier study, Jain and colleagues had reported that 40 percent of women being treated for infertility would choose the sex of their next child if given the option.

The discrepancy between the two studies is significant but not surprising, Jain said. Infertile couples may feel they have only one chance to have a child, while the general population assumes the opportunity for more children.

'This study should ease the fears of some of people who believe that sex selection technology will become widespread when it is readily available in the United States,' said Jain. 'There is no evidence that the technology will have a significant impact on the natural sex selection ratio.'
