A new type of testing developed at the University of Washington may allow doctors learn the "DNA blueprint" of a fetus from cells from the mother's blood and the father's saliva. This would allow doctors to diagnose genetic diseases, such as cystic fibrosis, Tay-Sachs, and Marfan syndrome, prenatally without putting the fetus at risk. What are your thoughts on it?
