NBC Chief Medical Editor: It’s ‘pro-science’ to abort children with genetic defects



NBC’s Chief Medical Editor is very ‘pro-science’ and believes that detecting potential genetic defects in your unborn child has great potential for the future, but it also gives parents the choice to decide whether they want to abort their child. Despite ethical issues it may bring up, she’s pro-science so screw the social questions!

LIFE NEWS – On Friday’s NBC Today, chief medical editor Nancy Snyderman explained to viewers that it’s just good science to abort an unborn child that may have a genetic disorder, explaining that testing for such conditions, “gives parents a chance to decide whether they’re going to continue that pregnancy or not. This is the science of today.”

Snyderman then predicted: “I think the future will be such that you’ll find out that your child may have a genetic hit. You can fix that genetic problem, and improve your chance, a child’s chance…” When co-host Savannah Guthrie raised ethical questions about aborting children under such circumstances, Snyderman matter-of-factly replied: “Well, I’m pro-science, so I believe that this is a great way to prevent diseases.”

“NANCY SNYDERMAN: Well, you might learn that a child has a severe genetic problem. It gives parents a chance to decide whether they’re going to continue that pregnancy or not. This is the science of today. It is running fast into the future. And I think the future will be such that you’ll find out that your child may have a genetic hit. You can fix that genetic problem

GUTHRIE: Do you think it raises ethical issues? I mean at what point, if you have information that your child is going to have a genetic problem, and then you’re posed with the question of whether to go forward with the pregnancy?

SNYDERMAN: Well, I’m pro-science, so I believe that this is a great way to prevent diseases.
