DQ: If the option to give an offspring the best genetics is available and very financially affordable, is it morally wrong to deny the offspring of those genetics?

DQ: When/where is it appropriate to "draw the line" when it comes to ethical dilemmas of medicine? In other words, why is it okay to provide certain "tiers" of healthcare to a patient (such as IV injection, blood pressure medication, surgery, etc.) but NOT okay to provide other "tiers" of healthcare (i.e. genetic modification)? Why is one okay, but not the other? Is it more logical to either support all or none?
