    Just. Plain. Wrong.

    I don't think you need to support it. If she is your friend and you value her friendship I'd just be honest and tell her it's not something you can support her through as it doesn't sit right with you.

    That's not to say you can't support her through her pregnancy if you wish when the time comes. It's not something I would do personally but then plenty of my friends do things I wouldn't do. If apart from this, she is a wonderful friend, then I would just avoid the topic or tell her my stance on it. You don't need to agree with her at all.

    That should be illegal.

    There are not many things that would end a friendship for me but that would be one of them.

    I dont think I could support a friend through this. I was tested for an x chromosome disease that I thought I carried. I would have had to either do sex selection IVF or abort my baby if it was a boy or keep it and hope for the best as there were no tests for this particular disease. I have no idea what I would have chosen to do. Turns out some wonderful geneticists have done some amazing research and discovered a test for the gene and I don't carry it! I feel so lucky to be able to have a normal pregnancy now, am due in February and don't care if its a boy or girl as long as its healthy! I wouldn't care if I had 5 sons as I never thought I would have any. These people make me a bit angry due to what I potentially could have gone through, all children are a gift. They should go overseas and do gender selection properly if they are that into having a boy.

    In Australia, gender selection is illegal. It was outlawed in 2004 on ethical and moral grounds. However, in some States it can be legal if it prevents the transmission of a genetic defect or disease.

    I find gender selection heinous and an offence against nature.

    I would find it very hard not be quite vocal and judgemental with anyone who admitted to me they'd selected their child's gender.

    I think it's disgusting and if they are even considering this then they don't deserve more children
