‘This Is What Nazis Wanted to Do’: Aussie Couples Are Spending $20,000 to Choose Eye Colour and Sex of Their Children
April 1, 2019
(Daily Mail) – Australian couples are spending $20,000 to choose the eye colour and sex of their ‘designer babies’ at an overseas clinic. But critics have slammed the practice, claiming it is reminiscent of ‘what the Nazis wanted to do’. The Fertility Institutes, which has clinics across the United States, Mexico, and India, revealed on Saturday it has helped 370 Australian couples choose their child’s gender. The practice is banned in Australia. In addition to choosing the gender of their baby, 14 couples paid the controversial clinic to select their child’s eye colour, with blue being the most requested.
