In the case of Tay Sachs, "improvement" would come from aborting fetuses which carried the gene but did not have the disease (so one allele rather than two?)

Is there any evidence that abortions are being carried out for that reason? (Does RD provide any such evidence, for example?)


No one is advocating, let alone performing, abortions of Tay Sachs hetrozygotes.

RD needs to take genetics 101. Perhaps he should also consider sterilization.
