I don't know how valid that slippery slope theory is. It seems to me that as long as people are still as opposed to social genetic modification as they are today, we would never get into that situation. And if society changes so we are no longer opposed to these, who are we really to judge?
Just my 2 cents

I agree that social pressure is immense in these situations .... however I do think that a parent looking out for the well-being of their unborn child would be able to go against this pressure. I'm fairly sure that most people would look at the case of the parents you mentioned and say that it is morally wrong, however if put in their shoes I can quite imagine a lot of people would follow the same course. Nothing much anybody can do though.

I am with FZ 100% here. If people are opposed to Genetic engineering their children...then they won't do it. If people aren't opposed, then they might do it... But who are we to tell them they ahve to act either way?
Society changes. People need to realise this, and let it happen, guiding it down enjoyable paths...
