I am a physician who has always had a keen interest in the field of genetics and birth defects. In medical school, I was amazed and touched by the magnificence of creating a human being. From a single egg and a single sperm, a human being with all the potential in the world would come into existence.
I was also impressed and touched by the fortune that most of us as parents and individuals enjoy when all goes well with this magnificent development. I have seen how devastating and painful it can be when that genetic dice roll that God gives to each parent at the time of conception does not follow the usual embryology.
