Can a nation deprive its people of their greatest treasure : their own children? Does a nation have an obligation to see that only the healthy produce children? The state government surely has an obligation to teach its citizens that it is no crime to be sick,but that it is a disgrace to inflict ones own sickness onto others :the innocent children coming as a result of those having hereditary diseases and passing these afflictions and diseases onto their offspring. ..and thereby burdening innocent children with it. The noblest thing is for those carrying hereditary diseases is to renounce and refrain from having children of their own and to give their parental love and care to an unwanted child. Future generations will bless your act of kindness.
