no one has ever equated having children with buying coffee. at least let’s hope not. but with the racing pace of technology in genetics, is a gattaca-like world really that far off? do you prefer brown or hazel eyes? would you like some whip cream with that?
a recent assignment for a family theory class that i am enrolled has me pondering what lines i draw for such technology. but i’m a scientist, damnit! well, yes, but at what point does science trump humanity? my prof had us view an interesting movie (i think the link points to a more updated version). and perhaps, if i’m feeling spunky, i’ll share parts of my essay…but, if that’s to be done, i’ll need to stop writing on this blog and get crackin’!
