    Yes, Gary but unfortunately today people are being born with defective genes intact. Children born with cancer, mental retardation, adults that get Alzheimers, Parkinsons, Macular Degeneration, all because a gene on their genome is defective. Wouldn't it be a kinder world where a child and their parents don't have to suffer going through a life altering event and possible death of their child? One in four children born with cancer won't live to reach teenage years. Well today is that day. Today doctors can see where there is a defect of a major disease or mutation on a gene and they can correct it. The only thing that is stopping that pain and suffering of a disease is a philosophy of it isn't ethically correct. Is it ethically correct for someone to have a terminal disease and do nothing about it? Whom is to say that a child shouldn't be able to live a full life and healthy or the elderly living out their retirement healthy?

    I can see editing genes in dogs and humans if there is a gene in the DNA that is abnormal with a serious disease.
