Baby Daddy in Doubt? Will Your Baby Be A Boy? Does Your Baby Have Blue Eyes? Tests Can Tell This?

If you are going to be pregnant in the near future, if you care for pregnant patients, or if you have an interest in the health of moms and babies then you want to follow the story of NIPD [noninvasive prenatal diagnosis]. With this technology tests on small amounts of a mom's blood can determine the baby's sex, it's chromosomes and it's paternity. Actually they haven't been working on eye color, but if you studied the whole genome of the baby, that information is there too! But should every mom get this test? Should every mom who wants the test get this test? Should dad's be able to get mom's blood to get this test? Absolutely not says the National Society of Genetic Counselors issued a statement opposing NIPD in low-risk women, and most medical societies, including the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO), oppose this test for sex-selection unless there’s a high risk gender-specific abnormality. It's a facinating story that is being hotly debated over the internet, let us know what you think
