Early gender DNA test offered by Paragon Labs
Early sex selection test raises ethical concerns
(CBC News, Canada)
it's not Acu-Gen's Early Gender Mentor. Paragon Genetics, a DNA
testing lab offering paternity, infidelity, and forensic testing, has
begun offering what is now called "non-invasive" prenatal testing, by
obtaining the baby's DNA through a sample of the mother's blood. A
gender determination test is also available.
CBC article makes the usual unfounded assumption that anybody who got
their hands on such a test would want to use it to abort girls. For
the 100th time -- please say it with me -- Westerners do not share the
Asian aversion to daughters. There is significant and growing evidence
that in the US and Europe, parents who hope to choose their baby's
gender are more often seeking a daughter.
