Do you think parents should be able to choose the sex of their baby?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 15, 2006
“No. The element of surprise isn’t something to be fearful of. If you can have a healthy baby, regardless of the gender, that should be its own reward.”
“I guess I believe in freedom of choice, but who knows what effect that might have on future demographics. I think that, at least in my family, they really enjoyed the surprise of finding out.”
“No. I just believe that God should still dictate those sorts of things. If you decide to have children, you need to understand that you’re going to be their parent whether they’re a boy, girl, healthy, sick, disabled or anything else.”
“I’m going to say no. I think you should just let nature take its course.”
