Science and scientists are venturing down a very contentious and provocative path if allowed to do this wholesale. . .

Neuro science and its practitioners are already convinced that by mapping out the genome, and the brain, that they can understand and replicate a human being.

Editing embryos is conceivably going down the route of the mad monkeys who want/ed to "create" the perfect race. . .

The more we can learn about genetics the better. Hope we start editing out diseases soon

You're messing around with living organic matter. . . this isn't the same as changing a few words in Microsoft Word.
