Imagine you and your spouse find out you're expecting. Having experienced this moment a few times, I know there's nothing quite like it. Your world changes, and within days, your child's entire biography unfolds in your mind: her first steps, first words, kindergarten, little league, ballet, high school, college, and eventually a young adult who will make you insanely proud. It's all so promising.

There's no such thing as a "genetic sin." There are just ordinary, flawed, heartfelt- precious human beings. You were not created for disorder, dishonor, and disposal. You were created for joy.

The deck is stacked against the baby. The doctor wants to perform the test so that he doesn't get sued.
