Yeah that’s fair. But at this point there are probably tons of them: cousins, second cousins, very distant relatives. People gonna do what they want to do. I see your point being for the greater good and I agree, but when you’re an individual, it doesn’t feel fair to have that choice made for you. That is a huge issue in our world in general. It seems that op’s family is no different. That’s a lot of people to get on the same page.

I mean, my answer above still applies. It’s like having a food allergy (but yes obviously way worse). Some people still go through the discomfort if they want. Sometimes being able to do what you want to do is worth it, without being held back by something over which you had no choice. I mean this guy lived a good portion of his life without having an issue, and I’d say it wouldn’t happen again.
