Scientist Predicts Eugenic Society in 5 Years: Gene Tests to Determine Lover’s Compatibility www.medicaldaily.com – July 13, 2012
“Professor Armand Leroi, of Imperial College London, predicts that the ever declining cost of DNA testing means that we may be heading toward a society that is based on genetic superiority….”
He spoke at the Euroscience Open Forum 2012 in Dublin.
“He noted that in some ways eugenics are already here, with tens of thousands of babies with Down’s syndrome and other illnesses being aborted every year….”
It’s painted as choice. For some maybe. In my view it will amount to people asking permission to have children from government health workers and insurance companies. When most people adopt this system of anti-human values, they fool themselves to think they will be able to stand up in it. I think we’ll all be surprised by the number of “genetic problems” that “authorities” will tell us we have or the fines/taxes we are threatened with for not obeying them.
The article quotes Philippa Taylor of the Christian Medical Fellowship:
“Our society’s increasing obsession with celebrity status, physical perfection and high intelligence fuels the view that the lives of people with disabilities or genetic diseases are somehow less worth living,” Taylor said to the UK-based paper.
“We must recognize and resist the eugenic mind set. Our priorities should be to develop treatments and supportive measures for those with genetic disease; not to search them out and destroy them before birth,” she added.
