Quote:

today commercial entities often have as much control over individuals' life choices and destinies as do governments. If the biotechnology and assisted reproduction industries were to decide to develop "genetic enhancement" procedures and market them to prospective parents, the pressures to "provide the best start in life for your child" would be considerable.

My Ideas:

Parents often feel preasured to give their kids a better future.

Quote:

6 percent—of certain fetuses declared normal by conventional testing were found to have genetic abnormalities by gene scans, the study found. The gene flaws can cause anything from minor defects such as a club foot to more serious ones such as mental retardation, heart problems and fatal diseases.

My Ideas:

Genetic testing has helped future mothers to identify any abnormality or diseases the baby might have.

Quote:

A second study in the journal found that gene testing could reveal the cause of most stillbirths, many of which remain a mystery now. That gives key information to couples agonizing over whether to try again.

My Ideas:

Genetic testing has also can provide parents the causes of stillbirth.

Quote:

More than a few observers predict that in vitro embryos will one day be manipulated and modified rather than merely screened and selected. They point out that the genetic technologies now being used routinely to alter mammalian species, if applied to humans, would permit the "redesign" of the traits of future chilren.

My Ideas:

Genetic tecnology has provided future parents the opportunity for their kids to be born with resistance to diseases, andredesign their traits.
