Genetically engineering 'ethical' babies is a moral obligation, says Oxford professorSubmitted by fishyculture on Tue, 01/22/2013 - 17:49
So, this expert in ethics wants to play God to make more ethical people... And by "ethical" he does not mean law abiding or compassionate in the face of human frailty...
"The expert in practical ethics said that we should actively give parents the choice to screen out personality flaws in their children as it meant they were then less likely to "harm themselves and others".
The academic, who is also editor-in-chief of the Journal of Medical Ethics, made his comments in an article in the latest edition of Reader's Digest.
He explained that we are now in the middle of a genetic revolution and that although screening, for all but a few conditions, remained illegal it should be welcomed."
And by the way, professor... Who gets to decide if my fetus has the desired genetics, you or me?
