  • I don't think they are all deformed, but certain undesirable genetics can be exaggerated to the point of deformity. This is also used in breeding certain purebred animals, such as line breeding (offspring to parent or grandparent) to bring out the maximum in desirable traits, such as less white fur or a higher-set tail, or whatever. Hovever people are not animals and incest is sick. But look at the royal families of Europe up untill the last century. They were pretty well inbred, and they had some pretty undesirable traits!

  • um yeah they all have unibrows & one not all of them are "deformed". They have a higher instence of genetic problems because they are possibly getting two copies of a defective gene instead of just one...regardles, i think this is a joke question anyway because nobody is going to come on here & start a profile saying they are pregnant by incest. Its illegal.

  • I am usually against abortions for most cases but I really think you should consider it. Many babies of incest are usually deformed or have some congenital defect, which leads to suffering. Get help from somebody but I would advise not seeing that family member that way.

  • LOL ... you people are wrong but funny!!! Although it is not desirable to have a child with a family member, it may or may not have and diabilities or defects. If your concerned go see someone who works in the genetics department.

  • Not always, however the prominence of recessive alelles in children who are products of incest make genetic problems more likely.
