A common statement on the part of homosexual individuals, and their legal advocates, is that homosexualism is not a choice, but rather it is simply how they were born. That they do not actually have a choice in who or what they are, or how they conduct themselves. For the sake of hypothetical discussion, let us assume that the science of genetics has developed a test to identify a specific gene, or a specific sequence of genes, that are present in homosexual individuals but not heterosexual individuals, and confirming once and for all that such is indeed the result of birth and not a personal or individual choice on the part of anyone. There is now a test to identify homosexuals before they are even born. Assuming such a test can be developed, what sort of repercussions would such a development and scientific advancement have with regard to the subject of abortion? Would such a test ultimately come to be used as a basis for terminating fetuses that possess homosexual genetics, simply because their parents do not wish to have a homosexual child? If the homosexual community could, essentially, come to be exterminated through homosexual fetuses being terminated, how would such play out in the field of civil rights? Homosexuals are regarded as a protected class with various hate crime laws, so would such protections automatically extend to fetuses that carry homosexual genetics, and thus those pregnancies could not legally be terminated, thus saying women do not actually have a legal say over their bodies? Or would the homosexual community be told that the future of their continued existence is of lesser importance than the right of women to have legal control over their bodies?
