I copied this over from the Hot Debates board.
"It is right to be contented with what we have, but never with what we are."
Where's the commentary from the agency that performed the procedure? I don't even see that the publication sought them out for comment.
I don't know if the publication is just leaving a ton of stuff out or if this couple was just really, really inattentive. Did they ask the u/s tech if they could identify the gender? Did they get in writing from the agency that they would only implant female embryos? I have now ready four articles on the story and none of them got commentary from the agency.
Besides that, almost nothing is 100% certain. With access to the chromosomal makeup, the agency should have been able to confirm sex prior to transfer. But without their comment, we don't know precisely what happened.
