OK. I’m starting this thread because honestly I do NOT know all the nuances of genetic testing or predestination and such.
But, do you think that with the advent of amniotic (I believe) genetic testing that the rate of abortions will increase…and as these tests get better and more accurate, that the rate of ‘frivolous’ abortions will spike dramatically?
At this point I can certainly understand if you do testing and your doctor says “well, this baby has severe physical deformities and will probably not live beyond the age of five.” If you’re a struggling family, if you’re ill prepared to deal with such a trial…I’m sure you’ll find very few people who will chastize your choice to abort.
But how far do we go? Do you abort a child who will be asthmatic? Who will have scoliosis? Who will be green eyed instead of blue like you’d hoped?
Do you think that perhaps these will give the ‘crazy’ pro-lifer’s more fuel?
And is there a point where certain abortions are more…acceptable than others?
