yesterday someone posted a question about being able to make your baby the way that you want. well this got me to thinking, if people that make there babies and get to choose what they want there babies to have does it end with just how they look or could they also make them smarter or make them have some sort of special talent? also knowing that an average American can not afford to pay for a made baby but rich people can do you think that rich people will try to make there babies smart so that they can hold the higher paying jobs? making it harder for an average American to get that type of job. do you think that if this was to happen that it could cause some type of segregation between made babies and home made babies?
this is a three part question sorry, but it just got me to thinking how cruel and unfair this is to the kids.
This is totally dangerous. It devalues those who are not deemed ideal. I have three children. My twins have learning disabilities, fairly serious, they may never live completely independently. Does that make them less valuable than my "normal" child? Then there is the issue of those who's disability is from a birth accident. I take care of a little girl who has sever brain damage due to the cord being wrapped around her neck. She is a beautiful child, but is medically dependant and probably will be for the rest of her life. But she is a blessing to my life. So is she less valuable? The problem with most of these situations is that we develop the technology before we stop to think about the ethics. The whole situation with IVF and what to do with the frozen embryos, cloning, etc. As a society we haven't thought these things out.
