For centuries, male gender bias has proliferated around the world. However today, in a time when medical procedures that can confirm a child's gender before birth are commonplace, the ethical and societal considerations in gender selection become especially complex. The authors explore historical roots of male gender bias, and discuss resulting burdens on the 21st Century health practitioner.
