Personally, it seems to me that the desire to have children is, in principle, selfish. And I also don’t consider selfishness to be something bad, which should be embarrassed. So you have a hereditary burden there, you do not have it - if you want children, give birth to children at your pleasure. Even if these children are sick (take care of them as best you can), they will still be alive for a while. I, too, may not live long, but life is good for everyone. And it's good that I am. Although mb I was born only because my parents selfishly wanted children for themselves.

The inheritance of hereditary diseases is probabilistic. The probability can be calculated today and in many cases terminate a pregnancy, if you are not lucky.

Let's say the probability of having a child with an inherited disease is dizzily (true) higher for a particular parent than in the population. As much as 3%. Not 0.003%. 1000 times higher than average !! - At the same time, the probability of birth (even without embryonic diagnostics) of a healthy child is 100-3 = 97%

This is an example; but - yes, you always need to look at specific numbers and the situation.

And so - yeah, it's "selfish" to give birth to children who, after all, can get hit by a car, and in general, in the end, they will die 100% ... However, like you and me))

In many ways, to have children today is generally selfish. The planet is overpopulated, many predict that twenty years and a point of no return will come. But we are people and selfishness is our main feature, especially when it comes to children.

Giving life, because you doom not only to illness, it is difficulties, difficult choices, hopelessness of death. In fact, a huge investment without any conscious profit.

Strange as it may seem, this is the essence of the universe. We fight from generation to generation, our legacy is not at home and a bank account, but intelligence, hard work, knowledge, skills. Children are continuation of their parents and they are given the right to decide their child's fate.

Hostile disease is not always a sentence, and history has proven this many times.
