Sex selection and designer babies

Controversial adverts from a U.S. fertility clinic offering 'illegal' sex selective IVF have sparked outrage. 

The Washington Centre for Reproductive Medicine has created the ads with a picture of a young ethnic boy and girl in traditional Indian dress, under the heading ‘Create the family you want: Boy or girl’.
The Bellevue, Washington, clinic's ad was published in the print edition of the weekly Indo-Canadian Voice paper, and on the publication's website, despite the process of sex selection being illegal in Canada.
