Genetic testing in here, whether we like it or not, and for better or worse. The new developments, especially a recently developed test that claims it can predict what health conditions and at what age your child will die, bring with them a host of questions. One of those questions – how this can effect our faith – I’ve posed in “Faith, genetics and life decisions collide again,” appearing in the October 13 edition of Our Sunday Visitor.
I hope you’ll read my article (at the link below) and discuss it with others. This is a topic that should make us stop and say, “Hmmmm.” More than that, it’s a topic that should open us to prayerful thought and animated discussion.
I’m truly interested in your thoughts and impressions, and am looking forward to seeing them in the comment box. Tell me, how might genetic testing affect our faith?
