What of therapeutic abortions, which take place after test have indicated a risk of birth defects or genetic diseases? How should the counseling be done in such cases? Is it really always best to abort than to give birth to a defective child? What if the test shows only a statistical correlation between an abnormal chromosome and an actual genetic disease? Should the choice be left to the mother or the parents, and how much should an attempt be made to influence them to be socially responsible in such cases? Give reasons for holding your view.
