Australian attitudes toward sex-selection technology

Kippen, Rebecca; Evans, Heather (Ann); Gray, Edith


Previous research based on analysis of fertility behavior and expressed preferences shows that many Australian parents want both a son and a daughter. However, most respondents to a representative survey of Australians did not approve of IVF or abortion for sex-selection purposes, and most did not think a hypothetical blue or pink pill to select sex of a child should be legal.
