IVF to have a boy

Question

Rabbi, hello! We are parents to four beautiful daughters and we would also like to have sons. We want to know whether it is permissible according to Jewish law to have fertility treatments to make sure that the next time we will have a son. Thanks.

Response

Many rabbinical judges forbid this and this appears to be the law in practice.
