"Professor Julian Savulescu said that creating so-called designer babies could be considered a "moral obligation" as it makes them grow up into "ethically better children".
The expert in practical ethics said that we should actively give parents the choice to screen out personality flaws in their children as it meant they were then less likely to "harm themselves and others"." Via The Telegraph. John Iadarola and Lisa Ferguson discuss on TYT University.

Oooook so what do you think about this Oxford professor's call for genetical engineering of human babies as a moral obligation? Should we be tampering with our baby's DNA to enhance them physically or psychologically? If you could go back and modify yourself, would you? If you have children, would you be willing to tweak them a bit? Where do you think this will end up in fifty years? Leave a comment down below letting us know what you think!
