However, with all the uncertainty, people still accept them because they know for sure that without them, the patient will soon die. The same way that these people are willing to try some cancer treatments whose outcomes are unknown is the same way they should be ready to try eugenics whose results are almost guaranteed. The only issue that the scientific invention poses is the risk of taking away the same equality it offers. The science is very expensive and, therefore, only available to the wealthy who already have a significant advantage over the poor.
