On the ITV News Facebook page we have been asking what you think about the use of 'gene selection' to prevent children being born with inherited diseases. Is it a positive medical development or is it going too far? Here are some of your views:
I've got a son, conceived naturally, and very much wanted. However, he has a number of serious health problems that are more prevalent in boys. I'm too scared to risk another, because his life is HARD. I'd like to be guaranteed a girl in the hopes of reducing the chances of having another child whose life is a constant struggle and heartache
Wrong. Somethings you just dont mess with and human life is one, we are to be what we are, picking and choosing the way a life will or won't be is so so wrong.
There are many reasons for which this should be used. Where the child will live a very unhappy and painful life and be unable to enjoy life. It should not be used for making the child beautiful ie blonde hair blue eye etc... Medical issues only
