Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2013-06-17]: An early test for Down's syndrome is developed. With this future mothers will know even earlier if their child-to-be-born has this disease. 
Such tests really terrify me. Because they are not performed with the intention to preserve or sustain life, but with the intention to terminate it... It is time for Bioethics to start developing IN PARALLEL with science! We can no longer claim that we develop a test that WE KNOW will result in the death of someone and claim that we are "not responsible" for the possible results!
The need to "know" is urged by a need to kill anything unperfect.
Our civilization is a civilization of (spitirual) death.
We WILL create the perfect body, like Hitler visualized. But when we do, we will have killed its soul...
