Of special note is an important piece by Jeff McMahan (Institute for Health, Health Care Policy, and Aging Research, Rutgers University) addressing the controversial practice of "selecting for existence" - that is, the decision by a parent to not bring into existence a person of a certain type. McMahon questions the difference between seemingly benign forms of selection and objectionable choices, pointing out that those who maintain it is no detriment to be disabled must also accept the implausible view that there is no basis for objection to deliberate inflictions of prenatal injury rendering a person disabled.
