    Would you ever use modern technology to select the gender of your child? If so, what are your reasons? What effect do you think gender selection has on the future.

    No, I don't think I would. I just don't trust science and man. Even if they say something is safe, you never know. I'll leave it to GOD to decide what my child will be.

    Not to be graphic, but I'd rather continue to shoot my sperm, and let the chips fall where they may! :spin:

    Some people try to have a boy...after having 4 girls. In those cases...would you try to pre-select the sex of your child?

    No if I had 4 girls in a row...I'd just accept that God Almighty doesn't want me to have a boy.

    No, I still wouldn't chance it either. It's just seems too "sci-fi" for my taste.

    It would be nice to have at least one of each gender with multiple kids....but I cant say I would want a GM child.....maybe my mind will change when I become a father but it sounds scary to me modifying the kids like that.
