Mark Leach: My Daughter's Paradoxical Genes

Mark Leach, J.D., published an article called “My Daughter’s Paradoxical Genes” detailing the seemingly paradoxical case of the ethical considerations arising from his daughter Juliet’s genes. Specifically, he examines the moral paradox of medical guidelines for Juliet’s two genetic conditions of Trisomy 21 and Double X: for one, prenatal testing is considered an ethical obligation and for the other prenatal testing for selecting against it is ethically prohibited.
