Is sex selection the new normal in modern family planning?

Model Chrissy Teigen on Monday revealed she chose the sex of her baby, sparking a debate on whether sex selection is the way to go in modern family planning.

702's Azania Mosaka gave listeners an opportunity to share their thoughts on the issue.

Listen to the interview below:

I think it's fine because there are certain things that are left out; that still leaves a surprise. No man scientifically, can engineer the features of the baby.

Joe, caller in Joburg

Once you cross the one barrier, the doors do open up. Natural selection is very complex... if you start manipulating that, you start opening up the door for weaker genetics.

Mohamed, caller in Joburg

It's already happening. Look at the taxi drivers, they behave the same which means they were engineered a long time ago.

Chris, caller in Tembisa
