That old ghost is getting louder

Norman Lamb, the Liberal Democrat Shadow Secretary of State for Health, dismissed the objections of disability rights groups to the eugenic screening of embryos, saying it is a case of discrimination against the disabled. Lamb said he did “share the view” that “it is tantamount to regarding an individual with a disability as less valuable in some way”.

“It must surely be preferable to avoid babies being born with very serious disabling conditions. That seems quite different from doing everything possible to avoid any discrimination against an individual who has a disability.”
