I think UFP law allows for genetic treatment to correct life-threatening or crippling defects. So the kind of treatment that's been discussed above about using genetic therapy to correct the damage to Deanna's gametes would not be illegal. The reason Bashir's treatment was illegal was because his natural condition wasn't a threat to his survival or something insurmountably crippling; he was just somewhat limited in his intelligence and coordination.
