This report explores ethical issues arising from current and possible future uses of non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT). It considers views and evidence gathered from a wide range of people and organisations, and from the academic literature. It sets out the potential implications of this technique for prenatal screening and testing for a range of genetic conditions and variations both in the NHS and in the private sector.
