Opinions? Do you feel this is ethical or no?
Do you think this should be banned or allowed?
think its great lol many will disagree but oh well. I find it fascinating.
I think it can help eradicate certain diseases in the future maybe even have the potential to cure cancer and fertility issues. Do i believe its ethical....well its already been done so what will we do cast these children away because they aren't ethical lol. Someone has to take a step into the deep end to progress...These mothers made the choice to do this with their body and their children. Im sure there will be some restriction put on this in the near future...many people do not agree with it.
This is how Sci-Fi horror movies start out.....
I'm not happy about it at all.
Honestly, it just doesn't sit well with me. I feel like it's opening the potential for more genetic disorders. I think science is amazing, and it's come so far, but this is too much like playing God.
I have mixed feelings about it. It's amazing what science has been able to accomplish, but I don't think it's something i'd do myself. Genetically "perfecting" your baby....it's a huge concept for me to wrap my mind around it.

Zombie apocalypse here we come!
Ahhhhh, leave it to Jersey to do this.
The whole concept is alittle off to me.....the point is so that the mother gets to carry her & her SO's own baby but she is actually carring her own,SO's & another women's child .....which kinda defeats the purpose of not just getting an egg donor. Mixing the genes like that could cause adverse affect down the line.
I personally do not have a huge issue with it - I'm fascinated by what people are able to do and having grown up with a family member that is severely handicapped with a very rare medical complication, it's good to know science is moving in a direction that will possibly allow people like my father to live a better, more healthy life.
Creating designer babies? I don't agree with that, using it for use in the medical field to possibly do things like cure cancer and other diseases is wonderful.
Both terrifying and fascinating.

That's why science like this needs to be very carefully monitored. It starts out with the noble goal of curing the sick and then it becomes yet another medical cash crop.

More like Gattaca, here we come.
