In recent years, many potential parents are utilizing a process known as preimplantation genetic screening to distinguish embryos that are genetically prone to developing certain serious medical conditions. By screening the embryos produced through in vitro fertilization (IVF), prior to transfer, parents can identify embryos that have certain genetic abnormalities, such as; Down’s syndrome, hereditary breast cancer, and other conditions.
