A fertility clinic in Australia has been given permission by local authorities to perform sex-selection of human embryos for families at a “high risk” of having an autistic child. Such testing could lead to abortions of unborn babies who testing show may have the genetic makeup that would include autism.

While there is no genetic test that specifically can isolate autism in unborn children, the screening is a sex-selection process because boys are four times more likely to have autism than girls. According to a report in the Australian newspaper, the test will be done on pre-implantation embryos — presumably created via in-vitro fertilization. So-called high risk human embryos would be those human beings whose parents have two or more boys with “severe autism.”
Although the article specifically says the testing will be done in a way that would not involve abortions, that is still a concern.

First human embryos — unique human beings created in the fertility clinic — may be destroyed as a result of the testing.

But the testing, skeptics say, will further lead to a culture of eugenics that already sees babies with conditions like Down Syndrome be victimized by abortion when diagnosed before birth.
