PGD Article @ The Asahi Shimbun, Japan.

Desperate couples seek court’s help, The Asahi Shimbun, Japan.
I found the following in an article today at “Asahi Shimbum, Japan’s Leading National Newspaper”, the reporter describes what couples and doctors are doing regarding PGD:
One of the plaintiffs, a woman in her 30s, has suffered repeated miscarriages.
“My right to have a healthy baby is being taken away,” she said. “Would I be inconveniencing anyone if I used the procedure?”
Ryuichi Ida, a law professor at Kyoto University specializing in medical ethics, noted that Japan and the United States have different value systems.
“Unlike the United States where people are free to do what they want as long as they are not bothering others, in Japan there is still strong opinion on only allowing people to act in ways that do not go against Japanese values,” Ida said.
“As technology advances, there will be a need for limitations on technology that would eliminate life.”

In my opinion and in my family’s case, thanks to the advance in technology we will save a life.
