We have been some decades into Human Genetic studies and rudimentary exploration into possibilities of improving outcomes for diseases and genes that cause disabilities.
Life has been held as sacred and all means were to be pursued to protect Human Life.
Abortion and euthanasia has made inroads into this Sacredness of Life concept.
As de Humanizing terms like ‘The Fetus’, ‘The Embryo’, ‘product of conception’, and many other terms began to be detached from the idea of the womb resident being Human, we now have, since it’s not human, we can edit this tissue.
None of the elements with the potential to be human, are in fact Human, under some court rulings, world wide, and in the U. S.
So liberties are taken to re arrange DNA, snipping and adding, to create a version that is different from the original structure.
Then this restructured element is allowed to become a living, breathing person.
We have very limited understanding of how some elements in our environment affect our DNA, plastics, food additives, natural and man made radiation, and so much more.
With our infantile knowledge of DNA and it’s structure, we boldly go and birth edited Humans.
We feel emboldened to do this because we don’t hold Human life as sacred anymore.
No surprise that China is at the forefront of this, using technology that the U. S. has pioneered.
The Nation that sells convict’s organs on the global markets, targeting specific individuals to customize orders, is a great environment for this kind of manipulation of Humanity’s future.
The Chinese have a less than stellar record of empathy and sympathy for their fellow Citizens.
There are those who argue for using research from Germany’s World War 2 research, even when the research was obtained from incarcerated inmates, many Jews, using barbaric methods.
There will be those who argue that we can use this research as well.
Splicing and editing human DNA, is not the same as adding human genes to bovines, to produce pharmaceuticals.
We are trifling with Humans, people, babies, children.
If a person can say, use me for your attempts to improve health, that’s their decision.
Splicing and editing formative Humans is much different. The end result is not understood, we euthanize poor results in animals, they are animals. We can’t let poor results of animal breeding and modifications to survive.
So… we get an unexpected result from slicing and dicing human DNA, we just euthanize our poor outcome, and try again?
