The increased accessibility of genetic screening tools in recent years has led to contentious issues. Prenatal care should be a time when clinicians identify patients that are most suitable for genetic testing. It is amazing how fast genetic research advances are being made. Counselors need to be able to provide excellent counseling to maintain their ethics and minimize the traumatic, painful effects of these findings (Schupmann, et al. 2020). The physician must respect the autonomy of the client and give the client the option to choose from. For a baby at increased risk of breast cancer, the customer might choose to limit the number foetuses within a pregnant pregnancy. Customers have the choice of carrying their pregnancy to term or adopting optimal health education in order to stop the development of malignant cells. In order to avoid any potential litigation for wrongful birth, the doctor must explain and expound upon all possible options before allowing the client make a decision.

Mothers will be more likely to spend money on health insurance that covers their child’s future breast cancer. Social shame is possible if the mom announces the status of the baby to her family and close friends.
There is an age limit for genetic testing
No age limit should apply to genetic testing. The fundamental principles of medical care state that the early detection and diagnosis of genetic diseases facilitates treatment. Early and informed decision making
