Two methods of directed procreation now available include sperm sorting, which increases the odds of having either a boy or a girl, and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), originally developed to detect and avoid serious genetic conditions such as Tay-Sachs disease but suitable for sex selection and eventually other purposes, such as choosing children with athletic potential.
