    that predicted homosexuality, should mass destruction of them be allowed by bigoted parents?

    I don't like the idea of gene-shopping at all (to select babies of a specific gender, height, etc).

    Agreed, but do you think it shuld be allowed, especally if it is kind of like a hate crime against race or sexual preference?

    Yes, I think it should be allowed. It's in line with how I feel about abortions: I'm opposed to them but believe they should be legal. If us pro-choicers are going to argue that an undeveloped fetus is not a human being, I don't see how destroying a fetus for any reason could be within the realm of hate-crime laws.

    The Liberal Democratic way of doing it would be to leave it up to the Parents (FREEDOM) why would you call the parents "bigoted", maybe the parents would someday like to have grandchildren.

    If it's not a baby yet I guess people can kill it for any reason. Hate crimes don't count if they aren't comitted against people are they ?

    This is such a stupid question that I'm curious to know why you asked it. It isn't relevant WHY a person chooses to have an abortion since the choice doesn't change the nature of the procedure for the vast majority of abortions. If a woman doesn't want to have a homosexual child, then she SHOULD destroy the mass of tissue before it develops into a person. Ditto for a woman who doesn't want a biracial child. Ditto for a woman who doesn't want a female/male child. Ditto for a woman who doesn't want a dumb child. Again..the reason really doesn't matter.

    Not as far fetched as one would think:

    Geez, a biological basis for homosexuality? Who would have guessed that straight people don't have sex with others of the same sex as a "lifestyle choice"? That almost supports the crazy idea that gay people should have equal rights.
