NOTABLE QUOTES: GRIFO AND SCHOOLCRAFT

"I could have financed my research from now until the day I die if I honored all the requests [to use embryo screening for sex selection]."

- Dr. James Grifo, former president, Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology

"What's the next step?...As we learn more about genetics, do we reject kids who do not have superior intelligence or who don't have the right color hair or eyes?"

- Dr. William Schoolcraft, Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine

Both from Gina Kolata, "Fertility Ethics Authority Approves Sex Selection," The New York Times, September 28, 2001
