The Fertility Institutes recently stunned the fertility community by being the first company to boldly offer couples the opportunity to screen their embryos not only for diseases and gender, but also for completely benign characteristics such as eye color, hair color, and complexion. The Fertility Institutes proudly claims this is just the tip of the iceberg, and plans to offer almost any conceivable customization as science makes them available. Even as couples from across the globe are flocking in droves to pay the company their life's savings for a custom baby, opponents are vilifying the company for shattering moral and ethical boundaries. Like it or not, the era of designer babies is officially here and there is no going back.
I always get a kick out of these supposed "moral and ethical boundaries" science is always breaching. It seems that most intellectually equipped people refrain from setting arbitrary limits on what others may or may not do, yet those governed by metaphysical conceits think absolutely nothing of imposing notional "barriers" to technologies they don't happen to like. And the reason is never personal; it's always for everyone's well-being.
Spare me the messianic claptrap. Bring on the designer babies.
