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.

Poem: "The Sugar Mouse"

You can now read my poem "The Sugar Mouse" over in Torn World.  It's a surreal poem that leads to a new kind of candy.  This page also includes a description of the jess irrajais (rowdy poem) form.

If you like this character and want to see more like her, please consider sending me credits or karma through Torn World's crowdfunding options.  Not a Torn World member, but still want to support the work? I have a permanent PayPal button on my LJ profile page.
