    Agree with Lifeinbitznpieces comment. Looks like the in the coming era, may be the price autistic and Asperger’s kids pay may not be that high and they’ll be more valued. (Especially if they can communicate using brain scans!) I wouldn’t be surprised if parents start choosing some Asperger’s qualities for their unborn child. I can only imagine the types of cases that’ll be coming up in Supreme Courts around the world concerning these ethical dilemmas.
