From the perspective you chose - is it OK to genetically test babies? Please use outside sources to substantiate your perspective. How might your view affect the future of health care? From the perspective of a parent, I do not think it is wrong to genetically test babies. As a parent, I would do anything to ensure my child is healthy. Over 98 percent of newborns yearly in the United States are tested for more than 30 disorders and diseases that can be treated if caught early enough (Kelly, 2016). It has been proven that genetically testing babies has led to more efficient treatment. A man named Kevin Anderson discussed how if he hadn’t been genetically tested as a baby then he would have ended up in an institution due to lack of treatment (Scutti, 2014).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
