Would have been nice if they would have given some numbers what it was before tests.

Also  this line of reasoning ““This is your life. You have the right to choose how your life will look like.”  has vast implications beyond genetic tests and termination of pregnancies  to how we deal with genetic modifications and other modifications of a child or child to be. Which ability expectations will be used to make a case that it impacts ones life too much if no action is taken? And how much will societies behavior lead to the belief that the impact on ones life is to great? How much will an increase of not being responsible for each other as members for society to enable a good life for each other impact the actions to come? For  recent piece on ability expectation governance see here  and a piece on the discourse around disabled people and gene editing from my group see here.
