Sometimes I wonder as technologies advance, and seeing how people actually behave, (not the way they want you to believe they are) now and in the
future, I believe more and more young couples especially those who are striving to be successful in every aspect in life will, when given a choice,
easily opt to have a "perfect child" either from select donors, or perhaps some genetically altered embryo.
What will be the future implications?
Who knows, I read an article in a magazine once that exposed a prototype home kit that would let any perspective parents choose the sex of their child
before conception... I wont get into the details, but with this kit at that time it gave about an 80% chance of a desired outcome for the parent.. Now
in a poll in the same article, when young couples were asked if they could choose the sex of their first baby, which would it be.. The vast majority
selected Boy. If this kit were readily available, and enough used it over a few decades, the future could be overpopulated with males.
I guess some things would be best left alone, however after reading the article in the OP, I am convinced that now and into the future, it will not be
If you plan to have a perfect home, perfect life, why wouldn't you choose to have a perfect child? well maybe not you... but you know!
People are already getting very wealthy doing these kind of things.
