Ethical objections to sex selection for nonmedical\ud reasons

By Eric Blyth, Lucy Frith and Marilyn Crawshaw

Abstract

This paper examines the main ethical argument used to support the use of sex selection for non-medical reasons, namely that sex selection for non-medical reasons should be allowed on the grounds of reproductive autonomy. A critique of this argument is offered, concluding that sex selection for non-medical reasons should not be permitted
