Eugenics in various forms have been around since the dawn of time. Many societies routinely exposed new born children to ensure that only the fittest survived.
Nobody is suggesting copying the Nazis and murdering handicapped people.
I am sorry, but there is too much knee jerk reaction to this...
Being related to desperately handicapped kids who should never have been born, I see the misery that eugenics could have avoided.
It might not be well known, but the Muscular Dystrophy defect is carried on the X chromosome (ie the female line) and the counselling given to families has for many...

Just had an acknowledgement for my email to NI minister.
Guess we would bets advised to keep quiet for now as they must have a lot on their plate.
Then in 6 weeks time, drop another pile of requests on them.
