Not in any useful sense, if it's available to folk like Sarah Palin. They will go right ahead and have a baby even if they know it will be handicapped. God's will, and all that, you know.

Knowledge is still power. If a pregnant female as a consenting adult wishes to give birth to a child with disabilities IMO then that family should not expect the state to finance the tremendous amount of medical help and social support needed. Then again if the gods exist why on earth would they cause birth defects in the first place?
