Genetic testing, organ transplantation, and an end to nondirective counseling.
Excerpt: “Organ transplantation is heralded as standard or hopeful therapy for a variety of end-stage, life- threatening, or debilitating diseases, including genetic maladies. Here I argue that rather than looking to organ transplantation as a cure for genetic malady, we ought instead to work toward preventing genetic disease through preconceptual and prenatal testing.” (p.240)
