(USA Today) – In other words, many parents are interested in choosing the sex of their child, which could have troubling long-term implications. A 2011 Gallup poll found that Teigen and Legend aren’t the norm: If told they could only have one child, 40% of Americans would choose a boy, only 28% a girl. If sex selection becomes more popular, the U.S. could drift into the direction of countries like China and India, which have significantly more boys than girls.
