This project will seek to develop ethical guidance for prenatal genetic testing after overturning of Roe v. Wade through interviews with patients and healthcare providers, and by conducting a normative ethical analysis. Data from this study will aim to identify how genetic counseling and prenatal screening practices have evolved post Roe, and describe strategies used by patients and providers to adjust healthcare in the context of new laws. Using an ethical analysis and reviewing results with an expert panel, Dr. Talati’s project seeks to generate recommendations to inform ongoing ethical prenatal genetic practice.
