Imagine a world where only the genetically elite could get jobs People who couldnt afford the gene-therapy would be left by the wayside Why hire someone whos imperfect when there are thousands of genetically perfect people to chose from These genetic alterations could be defined as anything that allows a parent to make a cosmetic decision about their unborn child For example genetic-tinkering would include any genetic alterations of intelligence physical traits such as strength speed agility balance dexterity and immunity to recoverable illnesses such as the flu or the common cold Its the ultimate shopping experience designing your baby says biotechnology critic Jeremy Rifkin In a society used to cosmetic surgery and psychopharmacology this is not a big step These genetic alterations would be unfair in many ways Theres a good possibility that only the rich could afford it that it could cause problems with jobs and health insurance companies and it may cause problems for children at school This could be our future unless we support laws to ban genetic-tinkering before it catches on This technology would be a huge breakthrough for parents who carry the genes for cystic fibrosis multiple sclerosis and Parkinsons disease just to name a few If they could have children without the worry that their children would either be born with the disease or develop the disease later in life their lives and their children lives would be much improved Eventually all the genetic deadly diseases would have a cure Perhaps the fetus could be screened for any non-recoverable diseases in the womb and if any were detected then the doctor would apply gene therapy techniques to fix the unborn child However the genetic alteration of sicknesses needs to stop at the curing of deadly diseases All illnesses that we already have a vaccine for or that are recoverable and treatable need not be genetically altered If this were to happen it could possibly have adverse effects
