Junebug...

Another side effect of more lives being saved is that the natural selection process is being side stepped and more people are reproducing and passing down the defective genes.

I have a coworker who has a sister that has a bone disease that is carried through the female line. Its the kind of disease where the bones break easily. It the old days, she would have died young. Not that she should have not been saved, but I had a problem with her trying everything to have a baby. And guess what, she had a girl and the girl has the disease, but not as severe.

Why do something like this, why not adopt? Is our need to pass down our genes that important?
