Lets see anyone making this a political issue based on gender bias
This is not a shocker by any means since many cultures prefer boys then girls (atleast their first born). However Russia & Japan are at risk whose actual population has declined due to less boys born every year. The cultural taboo along with sexism drives other countries to seek out such procedures to produce boys instead of girls. I'm sure this is a good medical procedure for couples who have difficulties conceiving but at the same time, many are simply blinded by their belief system about picking and choosing the gender.

Dr. Jeffrey Steinberg, director of The Fertility Institutes in Los Angeles and New York City, has for several years offered a fertility procedure allowing affluent couples to choose their baby's gender. Sex selection, outlawed in many countries, is legal in the United States: Steinberg's clinics have treated "thousands" of couples from India, China, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, and 142 other nations.
