    If it helps diagnose possible physical or mental conditions before symptoms are full blown, then treatment can start sooner.

    It's not a choice for any of us to make. This is up to the parents--specifically, the Mother carrying the fetus.

    It is sometimes necessary (genetic diseases and all) but can be horribly misused.

    Like all advances there will be some that abuse it but we cannot stop moving forward.

    But only for helping to screen for genetically based diseases, many of which lead to a terrible quality of life for the person afflicted. With trisomy 18, for instance, the child will die before they even reach five years old. People with cystic fibrosis suffer horrific breathing problems. It should not be used so people can abort if the baby is not the favored gender or does not have favored physical traits. People who would abort for such reasons should never have children.

    If a problem is found, the solution probably would involve something very invasive. At the rate this country is going, soon we'll only have male babies with blond hair and blue eyes.
