Human Gene Modification

Interesting article that looks at human gene modification from both sides. The Pros are presented from some and the Cons from others.

From what I see, the Pros are presented from the view point of health, curing disease, stopping suffering. The Cons are more from a moral view…taking God’s will into our own hands, gene discrimination, the ever present slippery slope.

Going Native is presented more from the view of gene discrimination though it is presented with the outward physical attributes as the guiding factors.

In the debates, the movie Gattaca was mentioned. I have never heard of it but will definitely look it up. Another take on an ‘what if’ in regards to manipulating genes.

Take a look and let me know what you think.
