Well it seems freakier than it is. It's adding a tiny genetic element to prevent certain conditions.

CROPPAAA!

I believe in Satre's philosophy: there is no absolute morality so if it improves life and if it's with everyone's cooperation then yes. I never post about anything but music don't know why (laughs)

They can actually remove the nucleus from an egg and insert it into the mother's egg, both of which were impregnated with the father's sperm. I think that's very amazing. All that is happening is that they are protecting the baby from a harmful health condition. But because so many people are still in the dark ages they have to protest. Okay admit you are not informed and then inform yourself. It's not some three headed monster factory they are thinking of here.

Are you against Blood transfusions?
Are you against organ donation?
Are you against bone marrow transplants?
That is also donating your DNA to another person so they can be healthy.

The main problem with this story is how it is presented in the press. They say 3DNA BABY!! REVOLUTIONARY!! If they would actually look at the facts and see it as a medical process to save lives then there would be no storm. People dont read and they dont think.

Yea I dont know enough about it. Seems weird to me. So they do it when the mother's egg has something wrong with it and they put the contents of the egg in another shell. I cant even get my head around that. I think we are absolutely going to have modified people in the future I dont doubt it.
