|French touch genetic: "Good Bye Lenin!"|
"'Gamete donor selection' is just another way to say 'sexual selection'. 'Genetic calculation' extends the evaluation of the expected phenotypes using tools that weren’t available until recently. And better understanding of the genotype/environment/phenotype relations can help to improve the fitness of our descendants. (...)
I’m happy that 'genetic discrimination' is illegal, at least in some countries around the world. This is the case for the USA were the state was wise enough to install GINA, to keep GATTACA in the science-fiction realm. Because GATTACA is essentially about discrimination.
Others states prefer the chicken/ostrich attitude: afraid of the innovation, dealing with it as if they were able to stop it, the head deep in the ground, unaware (or acting as if) that their citizen have access to DTC genetic tests (DNA travels quite well) and already some of them have bough them. France is an example of a state that made illegal DTC genetic testing."
