The Freedom Of Choosing The Sex Of One's Children

The Freedom Of Choosing The Sex Of One's Children

Press release of Raelian Movement

His Holiness Rael supports the individual freedom of choosing the sex of one's children

His Holiness Rael, founder and spiritual leader of the Raelian Movement, wishes to publicly announce his support to Mrs. Nicola Chenery. Thanks to an IVF treatment in which embryos were created and then chosen based on their sex, Nicola Chenery was able to genetically modify the future of her offspring and bear a girl... actually two girls!

Mother of four, aged between 3 and 11 years old, Mrs. Chenery has always "wanted to experience the relationship between a mother and a daughter". At 34, her dream finally becomes reality.

The story of Mrs. Chenery, such as Clonaid's and many others, prove that it is impossible to stop science and that the freedom to use it in all conscience will, sooner or later, have to be recognized as stated in His Holiness Rael's latest book "Yes to Human Cloning".
