In the November 2012 issue of Nature professor Jaime S. King has an article titled “Politics and fetal diagnostics collide.”  The summary:  “Without better regulation, non-invasive prenatal genetic tests will be targeted by US anti-abortion lobbyists.” For the record, I have notified Professor King of this post.  UPDATE:  She has replied and says she will […]
