Should the parents of a child with anencephaly decline to have more children?

  • Yes, if they choose to.

    Whether or not a couple decides to have children should be a personal decision, even in serious cases like this. Anencephaly is fatal in all cases, but it isn't necessarily a given that a couple will always have children with it. It's best for them to speak with a genetics counselor and try to discover the risk, and then they can decide whether or not they want to take that risk.

  • child with anecephaly

    I personally agree,Parents should be able to genetically screen fetuses for genetic diseases. They may not decide to terminate the pregnancy if they learn that their child has a severe disease. It will, however, help them to prefer for possible complications they may face. Additionally, some genetic diseases are fatal before or immediately at birth, so this would help them to prepare for that

  • Yes they should

    Yes, if they have a kid that is born with this, then they do not need to go and have another one. I think that they need to just stop with this one, so that the next does not have a chance of catching it and having a hard life.

  • No, parents of a child with anencephaly should not decline having more children.

    I think the parents of a child born with the disease should not decline to have more children. There isn't proof that the rest of their children would have it. They, like any other couples, should have the right to have more children if there is no concrete proof that their other children would have it.
