  • Mood:

Embryo Improvement

A new technique for preventing genetic diseases is described here.  I have two thoughts:

1) Any time it a law bans a technique that could prevent disease or save lives, without causing harm in the process, there is something seriously wrong with the law. 

2) There's nothing inherently wrong with having three or more genetic contributors to progeny.  If you don't like it, don't do it, but don't block the technique for people who want or need it.  You aren't living their life -- or dying their death.
