DISCUSSION: In this discussion, reflect upon and discuss ONE of the following questions:

Q1: What are the pros and cons of receiving prenatal screening tests? Why might some mothers decide not to have these tests?

Q2: As medical technology continues to improve, a person may have the opportunity to "design" their own baby. Do you believe this is ethical?

Why or why not?

STEP 1: First, BY 11:59 PM WEDNESDAY write a response with AT LEAST 10 substantial sentences, integrating concepts you learned from the

reading and other materials (include links when necessary). Show that you can think critically on the topic by integrating your own thoughts,

analysis, or experiences.

STEP 2: Return to the discussion to comment on at least TWO classmates' posts (in at least FIVE sentences). Expand on a classmate's comments in a

value-adding, topic-related way. Promote a collaborative, supportive community, and advance the dialogue through follow-up questions. Reply

posts cannot be one-liners, off-topic posts, vague statements, unsupported opinions, inadequate explanations or simply saying, "I agree" or "good

job." Also, remember to respond to all those who respond to you.
