Gene Screen BC 2011 Participant. Christie, a deaf female who has struggled with her inability to have children, visits a fertility clinic with another woman, Michelle. The pair are informed about the process of in vitro fertilization (IVF) and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD). They are informed by a genetic counselor that a growing understanding of the genetic basis of some forms of deafness has made it possible to select for or against a deaf child. The pair reflects on the social and ethical implications surrounding IVF/PGD from the perspective of the deaf community.
