I recently read this article at msn, and it raised several questions for me. I wanted to poll your opinions on the subject.
The ability to genetically manipulate embryos is now available (at a hefty price). right now, doctors can predispose a child to be male or female, as well as increase the odds of the baby having certain hair or eye colors. Of course, these manipulations are not 100% successful. Doctors can also screen (possibly manipulate, that part wasn't clear to me) the possibility of certain diseases, things like Down Syndrome, predispositions to certain cancers, and the like. With this power, comes the possibility of future manipulations, say predisposing a child to being highly athletically gifted, or intensely smart. What's your take on this? Is it ok? If so, are there any restrictions on what's ok? Where do you draw the line, if you draw a line?
