What are your thoughts on gene and embryo editing in order to completely eradicate any and all genetic conditions?
And that is of course just the tip of the iceberg. Perfect your craft in gene editing (which could be possible in as little as a decade, or a few, away) and you could pretty much pick and choose what kind of a baby you would want.
White, black, thin or tall. Blue eye, brown.. genetically edited to put on fat/weight far less, and gain muscle mass far quicker than un edited people.
And of course, those nasty genetic conditions would be a thing offthe past. No more down syndrome. No more diabetics, no more premature balding..
But seriously, do you think this is ethical? Do you look forward to a future in which there is a superhuman genetic advanced class of humans, and a lesser sub group of us 'un edited' group such as you and I.
And it is I don't think, much of a coincidence that most of the research in this field is being done in China, and all the breakthroughs are too.
Funny, seeing as you would need a whole lot of people, bodies and of course women to impregnate in order to experiment and test in this field of gene editing.
And how handy China has concentration camps full of prisoners who nobody in China cares about.
