Gattaca, anyone?

Chuck Colson has an article about how British researchers are suggesting we eliminate autism by aborting those with a genetic disposition to it in the womb.

Among the nifty little factoids you will find in Colson's article: there's apparently a name now for women who resist the pressure to abort fetuses pre-diagnosed in utero with Down's syndrome, autism etc. They are called "genetic outlaws".

Whoo-ie, baby, ride'em cowboy! Mama, don't let your girls grow up to be genetic outlaws...
