Do you think foetus gender test kits will lead to a rise in abortions?

44 comments

A new test to reveal the gender of a fetus in early pregnancy has sparked a row over whether it will lead to sex-selection abortions.

The American-designed IntelliGender test kit, which can be used from eight weeks after conception, went on sale in Australia last month. Its Australian distributor hopes to launch it in New Zealand within a fortnight.

Anti-abortion group Voice for Life echoes says abortions for sex selection were a problem overseas and the test would facilitate this in New Zealand.
