Now Sex Determination of Fetuses in Six Weeks in UK

As the despicable practice of female feticide increased in India, there was widespread revulsion against sex determination tests of fetuses.

Five years ago the Indian Medical Association had asked its members to refrain from conducting sex-determination tests and aiding female feticide. No support would be extended to practitioners caught in the act, the IMA had warned.

The Indian authorities are wrestling with the problem, and here comes a report that such tests are being sold on the internet, essentially targeting the western parents.

Forget the agonizing 20-week wait for an ultrasound scan, in just six weeks you can know the sex of the child, the DNA Worldwide says and the test costs 189 pound sterling.

Brushing aside the criticism over the ethics of it all, the company says early results, obtained from a finger-prick of blood, allow parents more time to plan for their baby.

It boasts "One of the most exciting outcomes of recent genetic research, allows gender testing and is the discovery that there is fetal DNA in an expectant mothers blood as soon as six weeks gestation all the way through to delivery of the child. During pregnancy, small amounts of the babys DNA pass into the mothers blood stream; so with a finger prick from the mother, we can analyze the babys DNA. If DNA from a Y-chromosome is detected, we can confidently determine she will have a baby boy. If there is no DNA from a Y-chromosome, we can determine with equal confidence that she will have a girl. The early baby gender test is that simple."

It says the test is 99% accurate and offers a refund for wrong predictions.

The concept of an early pregnancy sex test is not new - last year the UK's Institute of Child Health successfully trialled a similar "seven week" test.

But this was used for women at risk of having babies affected by disorders that usually only affect boys, such as Duchene muscular dystrophy. '"/>
