    Should people with genetic disorders be ALLOWED to reproduce?

    Should people with genetic disorders be ALLOWED to reproduce? That is should government step in to stop these inheritable genetic disorders from being passed down another generation?

    I am completely biased on this. The results will be included in an essay I am writing.

    States have used Eugenics programs in the past only to be struck down as unconstitutional. You can find an enormous amount of information on this topic.

    I believe that they should be able to reproduce. Nobody else is in a position to tell them how to lead their lives.

    From a person point of view, if their condition is sufficiently bad, I would "hope" that they would come to a decision not to reprduce, but again ultimately they make the decision.

    Lets pose the question in a more pointed way.

    If you were 100% sure that the resulting baby would be born with a debilitating congenital disease. Remember, 100% sure... would you let the couple reproduce?

    Still, I would feel that forcing them to do what we want isn't the path to go down. But, you could offer incentive's or subsidies for people who would get their tubes tied. You could have the doctors suggest it.

    Yes they should be allowed because this would end up very badly if the government was allowed to do this. Who knows what would be put on the list of "genetic disorders" that would prohibit someone from reproducing? ADD? Nothing is too far fetched.

    Slippery slopes don't often occur. Just because you ban couples from reproducing if they both have down syndrome or something, doesn't mean you'll ban people from reproducing if they both have ADD.

    Every time we have the governmnet intervene on something the government screws it up. Look at the housing industry, not enough poor people were getting houses, so the governmnet came in and made the problem 10 times worse over time. Look at the drug laws, too many people were using harmful drugs so the government came in and didn't stop the drug usage at all, but in the process wasted billions of taxpayer dollars and ruined millions of lives.

    Who's to say someone won't make a case that ADD would put a child's well being at risk? Sorry, I don't want the government involved with this.

    with the government we have now, i would not trust them. but, with an ideal government, i wouldn't be afraid of that.

    obviously only truly bad conditions that would make life very unenjoyable should be banned, like down syndrome and **** like that.

    oh yeah, you could apply that same slippery slope fallacy to cases of child abuse. like this: "who's to say that someone won't make a case that teaching a kid about religion is child abuse?"

    Maybe so with down syndrome, but this would have to be done at the state level, and not the federal level by any means.

    Yes, but IMO they should have the good sense not to. But yea they should be allowed to. It takes two for that you know, lol. They gotta find someone willing to reproduce with them.
    "...that's the great virtue of the free market, of the private market. It enables people...who hate one another...who don't speak the same language...who would fight one another if they had the chance, to cooperate economically. We were able to deal with China when China was a communist state. Even though we thought that that was a terrible arrangement, we could still cooperate. And that's what markets enable people to do. They bring freedom with them."

    I think they should be smart enough not to, but I can't in good faith support the pro-choice viewpoint allowing abortion while simultaneously supporting an anti-choice viewpoint that tells people they can't reproduce if they want to.

    Like it or not, we all have genetic flaws and though we may not develop any conditions ourselves, our children could very well develop them.

    So, if a healthy couple has an unhealthy baby with genetic defects, should that baby be euthanized? Think about it. The medical cost to keep a child alive possibly for decades. Millions and millions of dollars.

    Yes. Besides, people with disorders aren't the ones destroying the world; the physically and mentally healthy ones are.

    I wonder if there was a correlation between people who voted yes and personal disorders as well as religous beliefs.

    I agree to the point of genetic disorder.
