Depends on the disease. I think it's perfectly acceptable to have children if your family has a history of heart disease or cancer. If I had the potential to pass on a disease that would cause suffering, like cystic fibrosis, for example, I would choose not to have children.

people are so self centered! why would you do that to an innocent baby. mental illness runs in my family and for that reason i will never have children. yes there is a one in a million chance they will be ok, but i know how i had to grow up with a depressed father and a bi polar mother. its no picnic. i couldn't do that.

no way. i'd adopt

Uhm, depends really. Something that will cause pain for the rest of their life, pft. Hell no. Something they can tolerate, yes.

No, I don't want to have any kids...

Depends on what the disease is and what the risk of passing it on is. If the disease is too serious and /or the risk too high, I would adopt instead.

i'd adopt.

not if it was a severe disease but it would depend on what disease
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 3/5/05 - 5:44:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd adopt.
But I don't want kids anyway.

It really all depends on the tendency of recessive genes...I would if the father had normal genes because there would be less of a chance.

No, since I don't plan on having kids in the first place.
