25. No one's questioning THEIR need for it
I think the issue is people who want to choose a girl, so that they can have a homecoming queen, or a boy to take over the family business, because according to the first couple mentioned, girls can't do that. And what happens if the kid doesn't meet their expectations or doesn't want to? Or if the kid turns out to be the "wrong" sex: Are the parents going to resent them because they spent $40K to have a son and now they're stuck with this lousy girl, or are they going to terminate the pregnancy?
