Dating your cousins cousins is that wrong

The study's authors and its trumpeters in the media suffer from the congenital liberal conceit that science solves all moral questions.The authors instruct genetic counselors to focus on "validating feelings" and helping cousin couples "normalize" their relationships by explaining how common cousin marriages are. What if, in addition, your dad and my dad are brothers?Now a study by the National Society of Genetic Counselors says that having a child with your first cousin raises the risk of a significant birth defect from about 3-to-4 percent to about 4-to-7 percent.According to the authors, that difference isn't big enough to justify genetic testing of cousin couples, much less bans on cousin marriage.

According to the study, some African, Asian, and Middle Eastern cultures prefer marriages "between an uncle and niece." Should we respect those cultures by permitting those marriages?

" By that logic, wouldn't sibling couples be even better?

Yes, the risk of disease in offspring of sibling couples is much higher.

If you're afraid of mandatory genetic testing and you'd prefer to ban marriage among people in high-risk categories, why not start with fertile women over 40? Cousin couples compare laws against cousin marriage to laws against interracial marriage. Why is an increase of 50 to 100 percent no big deal?

At worst, said one of the study's authors, when cousins procreate, "'93 percent of the time, nothing is going to happen." What about the other 7 percent?

The greater the genetic similarity between your parents, the greater your chance of getting two copies of the bad gene.

First cousins are blood related. as in your blood related to your grandparents, and so are they. I would personally find it morally wrong to date any one.
