    Sorry to hear about your brother. I got two sons -both autistic. One is almost 5 he is now on the mild scale...the other one 2 and 2 months and we still don't know which end of the scale. I am aware that autism can take you to such a dark place as the one you describe for your brother. I do feel for you, your family and for him. I do hope they will develop this test for those who are at risk. I think a lot of people who judge have not been in this situation themselves.
