E is for Eugenics
[Autism Acceptance Month]
Eugenics, in this context, is the deliberate research into the identification of genetic markers for autism with the goal of prevention, as it is seen by those who participate, to be a genetic defect and undesirable trait.
Autism Speaks says they are “dedicated to funding global biomedical research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a possible cure for autism”.
