These people are the lowest form of life. The progressive mindset hard at work. Thankfully life will suck for these scum bags and not because they have to take care of a special needs kids that will be the only thing that might save their pathetic souls.
Being progressive is a sickness of the mind and soul.
I think there are two ways to read the results they got. They chose to read them how they chose ...and they got what nature delivered.

I'm really quite disturbed by the whole genetic screen to determine the future of life itself, once the process is well underway.
I have mixed feelings for just one area ..and that is profound birth defect. There are babies born all the time, and all over the world who live a short time ..and mercy would have been to save them that much suffering when medical tech allows for it. That's a class of small and extreme conditions, IMO tho. The boutique approach to child birth? I guess I'm just getting too weary to fight the trend anymore ...
I've accepted in this area? We are going to become a society that looks more like Gattaca than it does anything we've known as free Americans in the past. Heck, the only BIG difference NOW between America and Gattaca (See movie for context) is portability. I think hard about the tech shown in that nightmare version of 1984 life ...and really, that IS all that's missing. Portability and speed.
When DNA scanners can be handheld and results can process and pop within reasonable time to stand and wait for the result? We'll be able to watch that movie and relate to almost everything else.
its not a trend, it is the product of a for profit medical system. Hate the player, not the game.
If you had a child tomorrow that would require expensive medical care and nurses for the rest of its life, how would you pay for it?
And don't say you would figure something out.
