Like a Frog in Boiling Water: The Public, the HFEA and Sex Selection
Health Care Analysis: An International Journal of Health Care Philosophy and Policy 2004 March; 12(1): 27-39
This paper analyses the British Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority's 2002 public consultation on sex selection, a consultation that was mainly concerned with sex selection for non-medical reasons. Based on a close reading of the consultation document and questionnaire it is argued that the consultation is biased towards certain outcomes and can most plausibly be construed as an attempt not to investigate but to influence public opinion.
