In brief: Religion
Some religions forbid abortion, and others even forbid the pre-implantation testing of at-risk embryos.
Others (i'm an episcopalian) support whatever you must do to have a healthy family. Thankfully (i think) most of the world enjoys enough freedom of religion and from religion that no one need be forced to bear a child who will die young and miserably of a genetic disease.
