Should parents be allowed to screen their fetuses for genetically heritable diseases?

  • fetuses should be tested for genetically heritable diseases .

    Fetuses should they be allowed to test for genetically inherited diseases and also be allowed for its possible treatment even if it means going through tough medical procedures in order to do so . It is estimated that more than 3000 diseases are carried by human genes that gets inherited from one generation to the next . Generally genetic diseases are tougher to cure compared to infected
    diseases .
    The second most important reason to allow for a test at the beginning itself is that in earlier
    phases it might be easier to detect and take preventive or corrective measures , compared to its treatment after wards that gets alomost impossible to cure .

  • Just For High Risks

    I believe parents should be allowed to screen their unborn children for genetic diseases they carry a high risk for. Beyond that, I do not believe it is necessary. I believe the ability to do this is great however its not a service that is free of cost and looking for things that are rare and uncommon is probably a waste of time.

  • I believe that potential parents should be allowed to screen their fetuses for genetically heritable diseases.

    It is my opinion that parents should most definitely be allowed to screen their fetuses for genetically heritable diseases. Medicine is such these days that, if found early enough, many of these diseases can be combated and in some cases eradicated completely! So that being said, there is absolutely no reason why parents should not be allowed to screen their fetuses this early. The earlier the better.

  • Screening Fetuses Should Not Be Allowed

    Parents should not have the ability to screen their fetuses for genetically heritable diseases. If parents know they have a disease in their family that could be passed on to their children, they should make a decision before conceiving. They should either be prepared to accept the child regardless of whether or not the disease is present or they should look for alternative methods of becoming parents such as adoption.

  • It would encourage abortions.

    No, parents should not be allowed to screen their fetuses for genetically heritable diseases, because it would encourage people to have abortions. People would see that their child will have a problem, even a minor problem, and they will abort the child rather than raise the child. All children have some good and should be allowed a chance at life.
