Genetically Engineered Human Beings: Licensing Push Intensifies | National Review

“The scientists” claim that they can be trusted to “self-regulate” their efforts to create new biotechnologies. Baloney. Despite their mooing about adhering to ethical and safety protocols, two genetically altered babies have already been born, children who may have a higher mortality risk from being created as an experiment, whose children would have the same potential health issues.Since the “uproar” over that debacle — which I contend was about when the engineering was done rather than its doing — we still see no progress in bringing this field under reasonable regulatory guidance or legally binding control.
