Are we headed for an age in which having a child is morally analogous to buying a car? There is already evidence that couples are having prenatal tests to identify and abort foetuses on the basis of sex and there is no reason to assume the trend will stop there. “We should be worried about the future and where this might take us,” says George Amas a professor of health law at Boston University’s School of Medicine. “The whole definition of normal could well be changed. The issue becomes not the ability of the child to be happy, but rather our ability to be happy with the child.”
