The birth of gene-edited children — which I discussed here just yesterday — has been confirmed.
After going through the appearance of hand-wringing, I wouldn’t expect much of a problem if scientists said they really wanted to proceed.
Scientists are making human “embryos” — cell formations that are not viable organisms — from stem cells, but which may be a step before making human organisms.
Here’s the problem: Strict guidelines rarely are strict and they almost never offer permanent protection.
It may start with curing disease. But it won’t stay there. Many are drooling to engage in eugenic genetic enhancements.
