RT reports on British children being given healthy genes from a third parent. However, if parents lack healthy genes they should simply not have children! Producing a child from three people is short of GE, but it’s unnatural. How does a man of honour draw up his family tree in such a case? Outrageous. It would be better for the genetically infirm to pay a healthy couple (perhaps a poorer couple) to have a child, and to adopt it.
It’s noteworthy that in this case “capitalism” seems to be the ailment, greater regulation (against 3-parent children) the cure. Usually GE horror stories involve an oppressive government forcing it upon a people, but the greater danger appears to be the free market.
This “advancement” of a 3-parent child is also significant for its potential to lead to actual GMO designer babies, which is to say children who are not products of God but rather man. Nationalism, striving for the continuance of the ancient nation and its ancestral memories, might fail; but a similar struggle for the continuance of humanity might take its place this century. It might no longer be so relevant what nation one is from as simply whether a person is human or altered.
As with so many political “experiments”, Brits are used. As someone of mostly British descent, I wish the mighty would find another population to experiment on.
