Finally, inCongress has begun to examine an omnibus bill concerning all forms of genetic disease. The bill, termed the National Genetic Diseases Act Society has historically not taken a benign view of genetic disease. The laws permitting sterilization of the mentally re­ tarded~ and those proscribing consanguineous marriages are but two examples.
