I don't see any reason why not. The argument so far have not include any element of unbeneficial effect, if or when they legalized G.E and G.M.O.

It makes crops goes faster, cows fatter, (potentially) humans to be smarter.. why not? genetically engineered humans would mean healthier and a more productive society. Can you imagine a society where there'll be no more AIDS no more cancer no more diseases? How can you be against this?

I'd probably say I'm conditionally for it as some of you seem to be. Of course, we could let nature take its course to get rid of whatever deformaties come up, but I don't expect that to happen anyway especially how we put too much value in human life no matter how unpleasant it may turn out. We aren't letting "survival of the fittest" to actually take effect which is how evolution really works. If we, ourselves, could somehow remove whatever harmful genes from a potential child we could or even add a few others to make them more resistant to other diseases, there could be less problems when it comes to healthcare (if we don't end up causing any of our own). The process may be expensive at first, but it could save a lot in the long run.

what if only the rich could afford the treatment? what if the gap between the rich and poor doesn't only apply to financial status but smarts?

Having an expensive treatment is better having no treatment at all. You're making it sound like the rich people isn't even worth saving for.

but then, what if there are too many humans on planet earth and we suck our resources dry???????? <<< and this: then just genetically engineer those resources o_O

when you are modifying a baby you are totally changing his genes means you are making a new creature with new and maybe strange qualities but when you are modifying food you'll improve abilities and qualities in a person you'll get his approvement in advance..
