Screening and Genetics

Article here by Marcel Berlins in the Guardian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2009/jan/14/autism-genetics-ethics It is the autism screening debate, but is relevant to any spectrum disorder and the pros and cons of gassing us all in the womb. I might try writing a post about it later if my concentration permits.

I want to comment, but It's all far too depressing for words. I've already decided it's a good thing I probably can't pass my genes on to any poor child, but that's a bit different ain't it. *sigh* Life = complicated. I want to go an live on a remote commune and barter turnips in exchange for internet access.

I tried hard not to weigh in, but couldn't restrain myself.
