Down’s disorder and the danger of genetic counseling

Neither in Sally Phillips’ film, A World Without Down’s Syndrome, nor in your audit by Julia Raeside (Last night’s TV: A narrative straight from the heart – and that is the issue, 6 October) was there any reference to “genetic counseling”. However perhaps still inside living memory defenders of genetic counseling in America (and somewhere else) were upholding specific rearing to decide the eventual fate of society. It is significant that such thoughts were grounded in crafted by Francis Galton, who was a capable effect on Cyril Burt, who thus later built up the 11 or more exams. (His impact may be revived in the tests used to figure out who is most fit for the new punctuation schools we’re guaranteed.) ZA2145 ZA4621 ZA7097 ZA9302 ZA11779

Sally Phillips’ program does, accordingly, offer a convenient indication of the threats of setting out on a determinist perspective of society and the hazard that particular reproducing is worthy. As Phillips announced, there is a considerable measure of strain to evade a potential “weight” as a result of the wrong kind of baby. In America the eugenicists accumulated information indicating to demonstrate which segments of society were increasingly (or less) fit for what’s to come. Favored arrangements proposed to evade a future populated by those considered to be “unfit” for society included confinements on migration and upheld disinfection. There is much in the historical backdrop of that development to caution us of the risks of a determinist future. It is, in this way, appropriate to have the inquiries raised: what sort of society do we need; and how kind do we need society to be? ZA2157 ZA4633 ZA7109 ZA9314 ZA11791
