NT, do you think this is ethical? Vol. Clinic will allow parents to customize their babies.

    why only blonde or blue? hazel eyes? purple tones? is that too hard to do? what about dirty blonde? everything is not "perfect". btw, if everyone hasblonde haired blue eyed, that just makes the brunettes more "rare" and then those types will be highly sought after... these parents are a bunch ofhypebeasts. blonde wont be in style in 15 years when EVERYONE has a blonde child lol

    This is sort of sick to me. Like, the cool thing for me is that you never know what your baby is going to look like. Takes all the fun out of it...

    This is just the start of crazy pseudo science practices.

    You seem dumber and dumber every time you post.

    Anyways, this is really awful to me upon further review. They're gonna make a bunch of embryos and just toss out the ones that they don't like? ##%# isdisgusting.

    Disgusting. I can see if you want to take a gene that carries a hereditary disease but to alter the child's appearance is terrible. Not everyone can behandsome.

    So if the kid isnt really yours and the chick knows it she can make it look like you to keep you around with no question. For scandalous females they probablylickin they chops and campin out for this.

    It is absolutely not ethical because if this is allowed to continue it would trigger divergent evolution that would result in 2 differentspecies being separated by class/wealth. Only the wealthy can afford to customize their babies.


    In addition diversity is life's solution to a lot of environmental stressors eg. disease, microbes. By being able to select certain traitsunnaturally we may lose some of this diversity. Everyone would want the latest designer trait.....bigger muscles, taller babies, a certain eye color. HypebeastParents following genetic trends=loss of diversity=bad for the human race.

    i think it would depend on how much customizing the parents do. some parents may just keep the "factory settings," but just go withblack hair or something.

    I doubt I'm ever going to have kids but if I do that sounds cool as hell. I'd do it.
