    Lets suppose the following happens:

    Scientists discover that, without any doubt, homosexuality is genetic. Because of that, they produce a test that can be administered at a Doctors office that will tell you if your unborn child will be gay.

    Lets also suppose that numerous organizations open clinics that will perform that test and abort any "gay" fetuses. They will only abort a gay fetus. This becomes so popular that the gay population of the world drops to alarmingly low numbers.

    Now, we all know this isn't going to happen. I am raising this question to delve into the ethics of the matter... realizing it is far fetched.

    What say you?

    Won't happen.

    For one thing, there is no gay gene. They aren't even looking for one anymore.

    Second, even if there was, Christians would not advocate for abortion.

    It's a nice bit of rhetoric to pretend they would. But they wouldn't.

    There are pastors who counsel in favor of abortion already.

    Here's one for you: let's say a school of thought becomes popular among scientists that believes the human race will evolve to higher intelligence at a faster rate if the offspring of less intelligent people are aborted and those adults are then sterilized so as not to reproduce. Clinics then open for that purpose and flourish.

    Hello margaret sanger.

    It's called eugenics. It's not a new concept. And it's wrong. As are the pastors who counsel in favor of abortion.

    I want to keep this on the subject of the "gay" gene.

    Lets just suppose there is one and it is discovered and the abortions begin in huge numbers.

    What's the point?

    It won't happen. It's a lefty fantasy, but it won't happen. There is no gay gene.
