I have been following with deep interest, the series your paper has been running, on the new prenatal testing that is being done on fetuses to determine their viability. Shades of Hitler!
Have we now become a nation such as his, when he decided that all the unwanted, imperfect and those with the wrong ethnic background should be eliminated. How Hitler would have loved the availability of such testing, since he then could have eliminated these groups even before they were born.
What is this nation coming to? Are we to be a nation of selective birth, allowing only those who are perfect or of the right sex to be born? Or will we continue to be the compassionate and caring nation that has set a shining example for the rest of the world?
Those who are so concerned with nuclear war, saving the whales, protecting the endangered species, and cleaning up the environment, would do well to direct their energies toward the protection of the human species.
