Is it bad to identify the sex of the unborn child?

Only if you don't want to know. Even with the ultrasound the result can be the wrong one or the baby turn so you can't see, but there are other tests such as amniocentesis or chorioamniotic villous sampling that get samples of the baby's DNA and are extremely accurate. True, but no one will do the amniocentesis considering the risks just to find out the sex. For illnesses etc but not for that. In that same vein, ultrasound isn't done just to find out the sex of the baby. It is done to look for any abnormalities in the fetus. Determining the sex is just a bonus.

Can an ultrasound tell the sex of a baby at 15 weeks and 2 days pregnant?

It truly depends on the type of ultrasound equipment used by your physician. Most equipment can determine sex by the 16th week of pregnancy. Many newer machines, which show clearer pictures, can show the sex much earlier. It is not impossible to tell the sex of a fetus at 15 weeks. Just remember that ultrasounds are not always 100% accurate and that determining sex depends on the cooperation of your baby!
