Genetic test for unborn baby!

Our world's bright future depends on the health of children born already and also on that of children unborn. Children born with Genetic disorders suffer with disabilities life long. If the genetic disorders are diagnosed in the unborn baby, we we could either prevent or treat them.

Currently, babies are tested routinely for Down's Syndrome only. American Scientists have mapped the entire Genetic code of an unborn baby from the blood sample DNA of its mother and saliva DNA of its father. With this test they could see if there has been any spontaneous genetic mutations that are responsible for the most of the genetic defects. This test will be useful in future to screen unborn babies routinely for more than 3500 genetic disorders!
This test will be a wonder test to make our world healthy - through babies born disease-free and healthy!
