Will federal regulators green light ‘designer babies’?


Here we go again. Headline: “Now one man and two women can make disease-free designer babies.”

The leading U.S. researcher describes his work as “gene correction,” rather than “gene modification.” Ah yes, that sounds a lot better, like calling a baby a “fetus” or calling an abortion a “procedure.” We are told that this “procedure” “would change only a small, specific part of genetic code.” Sounds reassuring, like when these folks said “abortions would only be used in the first trimester and only to save the mother’s life.” And now 55 million babies have been murdered. Will the feds approve this? This is the same government that abhors God and thinks it is God.

Gene modification will produce the same fruit as abortion: the fruit of evil. And we wonder why this once-great God-fearing nation is bleeding out?
