If you did that, it wouldn't technically "be" your child since it didn't consist of your genes. I guess you would actually have to adopt your child.

I actually emailed a genetic scientist recently and she was VERY reluctant to even consider MY idea. I asked if choosing genetic traits could be used to BLUR THE LINES BETWEEN THE RACES, thereby practically eliminating racial prejudice!
JUST THINK!! If people couldn't tell "who" was "what" they couldn't be prejudiced, could they?
GOVERNMENTS COULD NOT MAKE $$$$ FROM WARS. Look at all the hatred that is going on now!
I didn't have the heart to tell her that race-changing has already been done....to ME!!
The lady seemed so upset.
One cannot close the barn door after the horse has escaped!

Designer Babies With 2 Mothers, 1 Father
Thursday, 15 April 2010,
Embryos containing genetic material from a man and two women have been produced in a project that researchers are hailing as a “ray of hope” for thousands of families troubled by rare genetic diseases that can lead to heart failure, blindness, diabetes and even infant mortality. The technique used has researchers hopeful that it could be offered to women within three years. But the study is likely to re-spark the debate over the ethics of embryo research and "designer babies."
