Genetically Modified Kids

Betsy here, ran across this today and thought of bioethics class. 2 genetically altered children, both born to mothers who couldn't otherwise conceive on their own. Tested to have genetic material from 2 mothers and 1 father. Obviously a lot of people are critical of the experiment. The head scientist mentions that cloning a child would be 'easy work' for one of his students.
I scanned through recent posts and didn't see mention of it, so I thought I'd leave it here!

  1. Thanks, Betsy! Fascinating, perplexing issue. Most of us find one mother quite enough.
