The article set out some cultural and historical factors in western society that interplay and affect perceptions and decisions related to Prenatal Genetic Diagnosis and Embryo selection. In brief: individualisation and reflexivity, fragmentation and the declining trust in authority, the sacralisation of the child, media and fiction, medical praxis and ideology, the market, interest groups, political decisions, regulations and law, and the fear of eugenics. The article discusses these factors on cultural area and there roll in shaping, what is called, cultural normality.
