Scientists day by day are continually honing the capacity to sequence the human genome and identify specific codons for certain characteristics.
It is therefore inevitable that the eventuality of "designer babies" will arise, where soon genetic technology will be such that parents could be able to pick the phenotypes of their children e.g. eye colour, sex, skin-colour etc.
Many ethical dilemmas are evident with the incoming age of genetics. Do you think we should make use of these technologies and "design" the human species as we have "designed" our environments? Or should such actions be prohibited?
