'Designer' babies have appeared in science fiction for ages, but with recent advances in genetics they could soon become a reality.
I find the idea of genetically modifying babies to make them prettier and more intelligent creepy and unnecessary. However, if we use these techniques to create babies free of certain diseases, I won't be so opposed to the idea.
Scientists have called for a public debate on this subject. I agree it needs to be discussed further.
What kinds of designer babies would you approve of?
