Have you ever heard of designer babies? It was in the news awhile back. With this technology parents can now choose what hair color, eye color, gender, and scan for cancer. They also hope that in the near future they might even be able to make the child smarter.
Parents can choose what hair color and eye color they want for their designer babies. But there are some public out rages about this technology. Some say if everyone gets accesses to it everything might be fine. But what people are worried about is that only the rich will get accesses to it. They also say that if in the near future they are able to make them smarter or prettier. That would separate the rich and the middle class even more. With the rich having the money to make their children smarter when the middle class can’t. Even more separating the two classes.
This technology can also screen for genetic diseases. If parents have bad health problems past down in their family
they can now screen to avoid passing them on. This can help stop genetic disease from happening, saving life later in the future. They can also use this technology to let the parents choose the eye color and hair color. It can even give hope to a country.
In England they have their first cancer free baby. This child may or may not have cancer when they grow up. But it shows that maybe one day there’ll be no cancer. The baby was the first in England to be screened for cancer. This gives the country hope that one day there will be no diseases.
There many other ways this technology can help us. These are a few things it can do. Parents can select eye and hair color. They can scan for cancer and genetic disease and give hope that one day there will be no disease.
Do you think this technology will help or make humans worse?
Will it separate middle and high class even more?
Do you think one day everyone will be able to use this technology?
