WASHINGTON — Little Amelia Sloan became a pioneer shortly after her birth.
As long as it is optional and parents are made aware of this I have no problem with this. In Minnesota, they do this without the parents permission. If you know about it ahead of time, you can opt out. The samples should also be destroyed once testing is done.
This could really alter the concept of "pre-existing condition." The thing that scares me the most about this is the obvious potential for mis-use of the information.
Testing like this is NOT done in Minnesota
