That’s the question scientists are asking themselves about Denis Rebrikov — the Russian biologist who wishes to utilize CRISPR to create additional gene-edited infants.⁠

Rebrikob has 5 pairs of Russian mom and father eager to let him gene-edit their embryos for a very controversial goal: to cease the offspring from inheriting their mom and father’ deafness. Nonetheless are some great benefits of listening to nicely well worth the risks of gene enhancing? Inform us what you suppose inside the suggestions, and tap the hyperlink in our bio to be taught additional.⁠

  • I’d go as far as to say I’d be willing to let people gene edit for reasons beyond preventing diseases, disability and illnesses. I’m fine with people gene editing in blue or brown eyes, intelligence, fitness. Let’s get this badass revolution underway ASAP.

  • If the parents are ok with it, then it shouldn’t be a problem. CRISPR might be the technology that would end cancer and other diseases such as that. It also the technology that might save our world by making our plants’ genes to be able to withstand the pollution that we caused. To be able to do all that it needs a lot of tests and such.
