...you had a pregnant wife and she underwent amniocentesis and the results were that the fetus had genetic issues that would render a mentally handicapped child.
And you could get an injection of a GM chord blood cell that would cure the child.
1) Abort the fetus
2) Carry to term as is or,
3) Have the injection?

Any injections that will cure potential MD. We are still going thru the BS to have the test for Connor to determine if he has MD. We just got his diagnosis a week ago long after my son and DIL conceived again and are expecting a girl in July.

Do you mean mentally handicapped like an IQ of 85? If so that is calling an entire average of a race mentality disabled and in need of either repair or abortion. Not a particularly ethical practice.
I would consider the injection. We chose not to have the tests because we were very low risk but some of the basic blood tests did point out our last child had 30% chance or better of CP and we decided an abortion was not in the cards. We continued and had our 3rd perfect child.
