    PGD article on Yahoo! news, Designer Babies are only for the rich?

    Interesting article I noticed on Yahoo! news. It was on the main page too!
    Is PGD for gender selection becoming somewhat "popular"? I hate to use that term, but I think you know what I mean. It seems like word is getting out that this service is available, and couples are flocking to it in droves! Is PGD for gender selection becoming somewhat common?

    Interesting. For sure, word will get out gradually, but a lot of ppl can't do it bc of cost and there being no guarantee of a baby in the end.

    It is a luxury item. I don't think you have to be "rich" or wealthy because most of us purchase homes, cars, etc on whatever salary/income we have and this is another thing that can be budgeted for. The biggest issue is there is no guarantee that if you spend the money, you will get a baby in the end. The gender guarantee is there but IVF is a gamble no matter how much money you have.

    It's better to look back on life and say: "I can't believe I did that" than to look back and say "I wish I did that".
