critical thinking| abortions in a futuristic theoretical situation

for a reason i can no longer remember, a discussion has been circulating amount my friends and we seem to be quite divided.
It goes like this:

In the foreseeable future,gene's could be analyzed and processed so we could know which genetic attribute would be developed in unborn child from the first day of Pregnancy by nun intrusive means.

In that analyzes, we could know if the child would grow with such and such disabilities,high risks of terminal diseases, and even "minor" things such height,eye color,skin tone,voice sound and so on...

The Debate revolves around the idea that if you can know exactly which attributes would be assigned to your child,would you can to abort it (in an non intrusive way) in the first day's of pregnancy(lets say,first week)?

This is quite a theoretical situation,but lets say the whole process is quick,unpainful,and costs nothing(fully subsidized and really cheap for the country).

Would you abort it? do you think there is something intrinsically wrong with that idea?

The Pit has already debated this, and the consensus is that kids are more fun to kill after they're born.

It depends on the severity of the illness and how much it'll degrade their quality of life.

Either way, there's no ethical imperative to do one or the other.

maybe it wouldn't be great if it's a uniquely great life but otherwise i don't see it

i mean it'd make it harder because they're more of a person in a sense at that point but in reality it doesn't change much and make it no more/less moral

I think we should abort TS and all his friends. With extreme prejudice.

Abortion is Murder.

You should follow Jesus and be against abortion.

Jesus never said anything about abortion. But he did say "for no baby in the tum-tum, have sex in the bum-bum, or just jizz on her tits"(Matthew, ch 69 v 4).

ima say no

even severe diseases can live to reasonable means and i'd say it's the child's choice. Unless it's something like severe ichthyosis or some sort of infantile locked in syndrome I don't consider that morally acceptable. The way I see it is if you'd abort a child with downs or CF, don't have children in the first place. There's a line, but I consider few cases to cross that.
