Do I think genetic testing is useful and important??

My opinion

No because it can harm the baby if you are caring one. Also it may cause for someone to get paranoid and freak out and do something that you did not intend to do. If you found out the genetic will cause harm or death it would be hard for yourself and your family. Also would make you feel like you have no time left so you don't do anything but you have a whole life ahead of you.
