Prof Noam Zohar of Bar Ilan University, Israel, will present a public lecture titled: ‘Choosing Your Baby’s Sex: Prenatal Sex-Selection – Biblical perspectives and Israeli Experience.’
Abstract: Should prospective parents be allowed to choose the sex of their expected baby – for non-medical reasons?
