At this point this is not really scarey. This is test-tube baby stuff if I understand what I read correctly, and 90% of babies are still made the old fashion way, that is, outside of a lab.
Where it becomes scarey, actually where it becomes slow-motion suicide for mankind, is when they can eliminate genetic defects AFTER conception, easily and inexpensively. If that ever happens then , if past history is any guide, it will only be a question of a short time until we start engineering the master race ( though we won’t call it that ) in order to keep up with the jones’s , or because the tyrannical majority decides by vote that to forebare manipulating the child creating process constitutes " child abuse ".
But, There again, that would just be another nail in the coffin.
AT THE PRESENT TIME all that is left of human dignity and freedom is in the gaps where technology and resources are lacking. For example, if there is not a camera mounted in your bathroom so the police can watch you, do you really think that is because your neighbor exercises self restraint, or respects your life? :rolleyes: No, it’s because puting a camera in every bathroom would cost too much, and how many people would you need to watch all those cameras ? With even rural counties having battalions of police the expense is wrecking our economy, and thank god it is.
