What, though, of those who would intentionally design a child with a disability?
Deep inside the report is this paragraph: "Some prospective parents have sought PGD to select an embryo for the presence of a particular disease or disability, such as deafness, in order that the child would share that characteristic with the parents. Three per cent of IVF-PGD clinics report having provided PGD to couples who seek to use PGD in this manner."We desire to control our destiny, and the destiny of those who come after. But what if our choice rests on flawed premises?
