As someone already stated, unfortunately, we don't live in a vacuum.
We have government stepping in to tell us HOW MUCH soda we can have.
You think this wouldn't be regulated?

Suffer a long time? I assume your disabled in some way and are speaking from experience and not putting words from a abled persons perspective into all disabled persons mouth. I know many people with varied disabilities and alot of them are happy and content with what they were given, it is more often abled people who become disabled that suffer more as the know and have felt what they will now miss for the rest of their life. Your comment seems to come the emotional part of your brain not the logical one.
You seemed to have -more- of a problem with the woman having children. Advocate of sterilization.. or forced compliance, or nay?
On Friday's NBC Today, chief medical editor Nancy Snyderman explained to viewers that it's just good science to abort an unborn child that may have a genetic disorder, explaining that testing for such conditions, "gives parents a chance to decide whether they're going to continue that pregnancy or not. This is the science of today."

I agree completely.
I think that abortion/infanticide is a gateway belief that will lead to the broader belief of eugenics. Its a logical step for these people.
Thank GOD there are more moral people on this earth than them. Additionally...You don know who you are killing when you scrape'em out. You might be killing the next Martin Luther King or the next Thomas Edison.

I humbly agree. Social morals can hinder scientific progression callable to that of religion.

Eugenics is an awful lot like what the Nazi's wanted to do with their "master race", free of homo's and mental defects, and Jews, can't forget them.

So you only care for Stephen Hawking because of his intellect? Show me how not everybody is capable of his intellect? (Apart from those of disabled mind, might I add) what ever drives his soul is what drives his intellect.

I found no indication that this runs in Dr. Hawking's family. Even so, although he is a brilliant scientist, I would not wish that condition on my worst enemy, and removing the 5% that is genetic in nature would only benefit the gene pool as a whole.
