The US should push research on gene modification and when it figures out how to prevent genetic disease, it should be illegal to give birth to a child with a curable disease.
You're wading in dangerous territory with this one. What is considered an illness? How do you determine what is an illness is? Is being shorter than 5 ft tall an illness? Is being gay an illness? Is being ugly an illness?
There are actual ways of defining illness that don't rely on societal norms.
Like what? Is being allergic to peanut butter an illness? Asthma? Being born with an extra finger? A big nose? All of this stems from comparing the odd person to the rest of society. It would ultimately lead to a very uniform populous where no one is really different.
Ok I just looked it up. Being antisemitic doesn't make you a fascist.
Those are illnesses, not differences. They lower the quality of life for the person.
Most likely modification will only be possible pre conception, not post. So no. It'd limit reproduction to only the wealthiest people and severely restrict those who want pregnancy but are opposed to IVF for whatever reason (it's a rather invasive, intensive, expensive procedure as it is).
It is still child abuse to give birth to someone with a disease.
Child abuse? So is it child abuse to give birth to a stupid child or an ugly child?
You are an impressive breed of internet troll.
A) not a troll.
B) if it can be prevented with modern medicine, yes.
