I was reading an article posted on Yahoo! news about how it may be possible in the future to select the genetic traits you want your child to possess. Want a boy? No problem. How about blue eyes? No problem. How about a kid who is a natural musician or athlete? How about one with a supreme intellect or astonishingly good looks? No problem.
If this technology were available to you when you had, or will have have, your child(ren), would you consider using it? If you knew it was safe, would you consider it? Are there any ethical issues involved that would need to be considered? For those Christian readers, what are the biblical issues involved? Would it be OK for Christian parents to use this type of technology?
Of course, I did not have this to worry about since my child is already the perfect baby! 🙂
The article is worth a read, even if it only gives us a glimpse into what potentially lies ahead in the realm of genetic selection / altering. I look forward to reading your thoughts about this topic.
