A team has been able to predict the whole genetic code of a foetus by taking a blood sample from a woman who was 18 weeks pregnant, and a swab of saliva from the father. They believe that, in time, the test will become widely available, enabling doctors to screen unborn babies for some 3,500 genetic disorders.

I am just waiting until someone claims to have discovered a "gay gene" and mothers start aborting babies that have it.
Liberals' heads will explode.

Just wait and see what the state has intended for you if you refuse to accept their “official recommendation” about what to “do” about that “abnormal tissue”.....

Genetic disorders like the wrong eye color, the wrong skin color, the wrong hair color, not being tall enough, not having a high enough IQ, being left-handed, not having the genes to excel in sports, ........ Well, if “inconvenient timing” is a good enough reason for some people, why not these reasons?

“Hitler won on this issue. “
No it didn’t. This article says they have to test the fathers too. Have you watched the Maury show lately? Sometimes they have tested as many as 19 men and Maury says “you are not the father”. So good luck with that. HA HA HA HA. They have to find the father to test him and only God himself knows who that is more than half the time.
