Genetically engineered designer babies will be an option for parents of the future. Gender, height, skin, hair and eye colour can be programmed into the embryo prior to birth. The most advanced (and controversial) techniques involve manipulating the brain to improve the child's intelligence, behaviour and personality. Many conservative and religious groups decry what they see as the commercialisation of the human body.

Now the question is, would you like to have ur own designer babies? Do u think this is right or wrong?

I feel this is a "to each their own" kinda thing. I personally wouldn't do it, though; I want to teach my child they can be born beautiful and unique, without incorporating things like this.

... And all that cheesie junk.

I think my boyfriend would like this idea. Or maybe he won't.

I should ask him. Thank you for the idea.

Too bad he's overseas at the moment.

Nah, he isn't. He just went off camping. Hahaha..
Although he'd be joining the army to do some training some day.

Really? c: Okay... I won't.

Wait, why do guys get freaked out over baby talk?

I get freaked out by pregnancy and baby talk.

Guys shouldn't freak.

its the same reasons girls freak out. its too soon and baby talk usually becomes relationship talk which i don't think a lot of guys enjoy.

I enjoy relationship talk though. c: ......... Actually. Holy crap, I GET IT.

Omg. Ew.

But then, I'll ask him about designed babies... Making it clear to him that it doesn't mean that I want babies yet ;D

It can make them smart?

*imagines 70 year old grandma self sitting on a throne of gold*

First, I'll be pissed that I wasn't born later. I'll feel dumb for a good portion of my life. HOWEVER, imagining my kid and future grandkids being rich because of how smart they are....... now that's pretty awesome.

But if a good portion decides to go through with it, and more people decide to do it, wouldn't that just make future society an equal intelligence? (I'm talking way in the future) It won't matter down the line and I'm positive it'll eventually become available to anyone who plans to have kids.

Interesting. I like the idea of customizable genetic code, I wonder how high the failure rate of these process might be, and what if the process fails and the baby has serious health issues because of it.

Everyone grows up in their own way. I don't think its right to design your own baby or the thought of it.

We're making new over lords. Hmmm...

Being a president, you don't have to be the smartest. You just have to be surrounded by the smartest people and make them do your bidding.

Pretty cool to be honest although I would just tinker with the eyes cause I love purple. Everything else I do not care about since its designed I wouldn't have to worry about autism in the slightest. At least I hope. xD
