Now we kill people who might have cancer later in life

But of course, you can't win.

As Chad Kingsbury watches his daughter playing in the sandbox behind their suburban Chicago house, the thought that has flashed through his mind a million times in her two years of life comes again: Chloe will never be sick.

No offense, Mr. Kingsbury, but your daughter has a 100% chance of dying. No lie. She'll be dead one day. Just because you killed a bunch of your kids in invitro to make sure she doesn't get colon cancer doesn't mean she'll live forever, or even that she'll live a long time.
