It might soon be possible to do full, noninvasive testing for genetic disorders in fetuses. What do you think?

I don't know, this is a double edged sword! First, would health insurance cover it? Would there be more abortions if the fetuses were found to be deformed/affected? If people did carry their affected babies to term, would they keep or give up the babies? If they kept the babies, would they have appropriate support, health insurance, etc.? There are too many unanswered questions yet,,,,
