Sex selection in humans has been carried out succesfully a couple of 
years ago in Madrid, Spain in a woman who carried the Haemofilia gene 
and so she did not want to have male kids (50% risk of been 
haemophylic). After the procedure she had two healthy girls!.
I must point out that this procedure SOULD NOT BE indicated to choose 
the sex of you kid in healthy families. I do not know if there is 
legislation any way...
