  • Gender Selection of Babies

    Designer Babies I’ve been poked and prodded at ever since I can remember, but what I didn’t know was that I was actually a poked and prodded at individual even before my existence. Transplanted DNA is what they should have named me instead of Wang.

It just seems unfair that my parents would make decisions for me before
