 Chap.9 note 17

 The issues surrounding screening for sickle-cell anima (which has been made legal in 17 American states) reveal this as a use of this technology that either crosses or comes very close to the border between what is acceptable and what is not.
 "People who are heterozygous for HgbS (carriers) are healthy and have no difficulties in their everyday lives, but there have nonetheless been several instances in which they have been dismissed from their places of employment. These dismissals were instigated by an accident in which four members of the air force, all of whom were sickle-cell carriers, died during intensive high altitude training. This incident showed that even carriers can become ill in certain unusual circumstances such as exposure to extremely low-pressure environments, certain infections, scuba diving, and alcoholism. As a result, immediately following this incident cases began to appear of sickle-cell carriers being barred by commercial airlines from working aboard airplanes and dismissed from occupations requiring physical strength such as soldier, police officer and fire fighter." (Yonemoto [1987b:28]).
