The Eugenics Hydra

In an update to my articles on Genetic Discrimination and NAZI Treatment of the Disabled, the menacing threat of eugenics rears its vicious and hideous Hydra heads once again.

Today's Daily Telegraph (a right-of-centre UK national newspaper favoured by the Conservative Party aka Tories) published an article on screening embryos being the moral thing for any parent to do.

Professor Savulescu, a professor of medical ethics, writes that:

"Indeed, when it comes to screening out personality flaws, such as potential alcoholism, psychopathy and disposition to violence, you could argue that people have a moral obligation to select ethically better children."

This is a potentially perilous slippery slope that leads to the weeding out of all non-desirables: the brown-eyed; the homosexual; the ethnic genes of which one is ashamed or despises... Please read the full article if you have the time.

Be very alert folks!
