PGD: Pgd or preimplantation genetic diagnosis can check the sex of embryos made with ivf. It is quite reliable. The problem is: what to do with the embryos of the undesired sex? Discard? Freeze?

Is there evidence for natural selection?

Is there evidence for natural selection?

Yes, but: There are no natural methods for gender selection, that's all myth.

How could artificial selection help shape darwin's theory of evolution?

Origin of Species: Darwin began by observing the amazing impact of artificial selection over a short time. This is recorded in his book, and he then brought his observations on natural selection from nature. Although we did not discover the molecular mechanisms until the 20th century, the whole scientific world found him persuasive as far as he went in his own time. ...Read more
