IVF clinics may soon use a controversial screening technique to get rid of embryos which are likely to grow up with low IQs.

The news has stoked fears about a rise in designer babies, which could be created by parents wanting to erase undesirable traits from their children.
Experts say it is 'repugnant' to think about terminating embryos because they are expected to have lower than average intelligence.

This will be the end of professional sports. And maybe the Democrat party.
I see a problem here. If they do deselect babies with mental difficulties and low IQ’s then how will they sustain the liberal democratic base???
I believe abortion si/was the offshoot of eugenics.
It compares ultrasounds of the fetus with pictures of Nancy Pelosi.
Oh no. They will be a Democrat!
Look at how powerful Planned Parenthood has become today, and you realize that the Germans may have lost World War II, but the Nazis sure won.
LMAO x 100.
I recall back in the 90s as abortion mills in West Texas were shuttering that Planned Parenthood was still able to keep them open in proximity to black or hispanic areas.
Stephen Hawking wouldn’t see the light of day.

They may/could also predict the predisposition of an embryo to be homosexual/transexual/etc., and that could eliminate a huge voting block for democrats.
....yeah,but they have ears like Odungo....smell like Hilda,...and lie ....like the media
Adolph would have loved this!

Bingo where are democrats going to get their voters if morons are weeded out?
Half of all babies are below average.
Watch what happens if they find the gay gene.
