IQ and let's go to medical dollars now as Europe.

Managing editor for Fox News health dot com Dr.
Manny Alvarez joins us with more.
On this -- This is all that team is so they did they don't want parents to find out if you have to -- girls.
-- a lot of sport to say who but law that they're trying to impose find the worst -- -- this whatever ridiculous this is.
You know look this is -- it's added an idea that has been put forward by the European council was reported.
And yesterday where you know they don't want Paris to make any kind of choices in regards to selective reduction selective terminations -- -- on Jan.
I get all that mean that happens.
It's a terrible thing where parents to come in they wanna know what the sex of the baby is they wanna get an ultrasound.
And unfortunately in some communities and some countries even in the US Paris to make the choice in regards to gender selection which is terrible.
However -- would not tell the parents.
This the gender of the child really goes against the grain.
All of that relationship between the patient and the doctor -- only -- old intent and purposes we always say that.
That this all the medical information that is documented in the chart belongs to the patient and that's very important that continuity that transparency.
To make this -- the rule in Europe and even to think to bring it here I don't think it will ever happen I think it's.
That part of it is really unethical you know to deal with the consequences are you trying to avoid its that's a different whole issue all together.
And they had the medical community really has to pay attention is this a big problem you know even at the fact that.
As you said and I agree it is awful the people would do this should try to choose whether they're gonna have a boy or girl.
But is it a big.
Problem pursue the high percentage well again not not to not to mention specific countries but you know there are countries in Asia for -- is that right look at this very carefully.
You know there's limited families of course they don't want families to have more than X amount of children and not -- -- but not hear what He it you know listen everything.
Things in this country are so you know intertwined.
With the immigration of people coming to this country that -- -- -- their cultures that ultimately we you know we get lost in translation.
And we have to be careful that this really does not come to the US because I think information to parents are vital.
And that should be -- transparency that should be respected and maintained for a long time aren't doctor Manuel has got it next week thank you very much.
