Ethical Issues in Genetic Gender Selection

When determining the provision of PGD as a sex selection procedure for autism, the authors of this article argue that it should be clear that the risk of having a child who has the disorder is high enough. In this regard, Amor and Cameron (p. 730) indicate that the risk of having a child with autism is highest if the couple has at least two children with autism, the risk decreases if there is one child with autism and it is lowest if the parents have no child with autism.
