Australian women go to Thailand to select the sex of their child

The Herald Sun reports that Australian women and couples, denied by Australian doctors the ability in IVF to choose the gender of their child, are going to Thailand where they can choose. At least 10 women or couples have been there so far.

According to ethical guidelines, Australian doctors can only allow the ability to choose the gender when it is to reduce the transmission of a serious genetic condition.
