  •  No one said every fetus. It is a choice (3+ / 0-)

    But I will not pull punches. The question asked about genetic diseases. When we know that the DNA of a fetus has known severe issues that have drastic real world consequences, then the choice should not be taken lightly.  If a woman can raise a special needs child and wants to, then fine.

    But it is a roll of the genetic dice I do not want to make.  My mother told me today to get a flu shot because a new study has linked Autism to flu exposure. What if we can stop Autism as well?

    It isn't breeding the master race to not want a special needs child.  I would much rather try again.
