The world can be a scary place. There are many disease causing organisms and genetic disorders that can make life difficult. As you read the chapter, be thinking about your family history of genetic disorders, how these disorders are passed on through generations, and what types of testing can be done to look for these alleles. For our discussion, answer ONE of the three questions below and argue your viewpoint.
- Would you want to have your genes tested to know if you are at risk for a disorder?
- Would you want your future children to be tested?
- What might the consequences be of having this information (e.g. health insurance coverage, privacy, etc.)?
Use the notes, as well as other sources (such as the internet), to help support your viewpoint.
