69. Yup,

the "should they be allowed to breed?" question. Sterilizing "defected" races, classes and what not was quite common eugenics not so long ago.

What can I say? I'm not really into universal moral codes or "shoulds" from "is". Maybe, if could agree on some ethical axiom, we could try to deduce from it a should or should not, but I'm not sure I'm interested. As the practice goes here, parents are informed of certain genetic risks and they decide if they want to give birth or abort. Fine by me.
