10 Movie Scenes You Should NEVER Watch With Your Parents
Parents could be barred from knowing sex of unborn baby
The Council of Europe could prevent expectant mothers knowing the sex of their unborn baby following a new ruling
Technology has enabled mother-to-be to know the sex of their unborn child if they so wish, but a new ruling in Europe could put an end to this information in a bid to prevent selective abortions based on gender.
According to a draft resolution passed by a Council of Europe equal opportunities committee, doctors should be told to withhold information about the sex of the foetus.
The recommendation covers all 47 member states meaning NHS midwives and doctors could be prevented from revealing information about an unborn baby to parents.
The news has sparked anger, with Justine Roberts, founder of mumsnet, believing that a blanket ban on gender identification would disappoint expectant couples. She says parents need to know the sex of their unborn child on practical grounds so they can plan ahead.
‘I can understand that there may be problems in some parts of the world with sex selection but it seems ridiculous to apply the thinking to countries where this has not been a problem,’ says Mrs Roberts.
