The ultrasound has been around for years now, and often brings the excitement of being able to determine the gender and the first images of a pregnant mother’s fetus. The ultrasound is portrayed in popular culture most often as a way to determine the gender. In today’s society there has been a gender division, and it seems that the most important thing about the baby is what color clothes you will be buying it. However this technology has also led to a social issue on whether or not a mother will even be able to afford to have access to receiving an ultrasound. Medical technology is constantly developing and bringing new culture along with it however, with new culture comes new social issues and the ultrasound has brought the issue of increasing the gender division, as well as a division of access. Social issues arise with the changing culture new technology brings and it is unclear what will happen if this technology continues to develop even further.
