Designing Life: Should Babies Be Genetically Engineered? | Designer Babies | LiveScience

Reading this keeps reminding me how insightful science fiction writers are, or how inspirational the scientists can get. I mean, several hundreds of years ago, no one would imagine a flying transportation. Now, traveling by air is very common. If we have the technology to genetically modify cells, it's is perfectly feasible to be able to genetically engineer babies. Maybe not now, exactly, but in the recent future. The door is open, the question lies in whether we choose to cross that invisible line.
