Boy or girl? More and more Colorado parents are choosing their baby's gender

​DENVER -- Do you want a boy or a girl? Many Colorado parents are making that controversial choice, and more doctors are offering it, using technology to guarantee they get the gender they want.
Last year, singer John Legend and Model Chrissy Tiegen made headlines for publicly saying they chose to have a baby girl, using an embryo screening procedure originally invented to weed out genetic diseases during in vitro fertilization.
It's not just celebrities using the technology to make that choice, and some doctors say gender is just the beginning. While "designer babies" may sound straight out of a sci-fi flick, options including eye color and hair color may not be far in the future.
