Soundbytes: If you could choose the sex and appearance of your child, would you do it?


Taylor Shrode, Junior - “Yes I would because it would be nice too see what your kid would look like before you had it.”

Jamie Brown, Senior - “Yes because I would rather my kid have brown eyes than blue but my genetics probably won’t work that way.”

Brynnae Dempster, Freshman - “No because they are their own person and they are what they are.”

Kaylie Clawson, Junior - “No because I believe that each and every baby is beautiful in their own way and if I changed the appearance it would be messing everything up.”

Mrs. Fross, Staff - “No I would not determine the sex of my child because it’s more fun not knowing. My husband and I did that for our child and it was fun not knowing if it was going to be a boy or a girl.”

Tyler Ripka, Senior - “Yes because I’m not going to let my kid be ugly. I wanna have good looking runs in the family.”

Spencer Herbert, Junior - “No because you shouldn’t change the physical appearance of someone because they don’t have any say in what you’re doing.”
