Genetically Engineered Babies Are Moral Duty, “Ethics” Guru Claims


Professor Julian Savulescu

Prominent so-called “ethicist” and Oxford University Professor Julian Savulescu claims that humanity has a “moral obligation” to genetically engineer children — essentially creating “designer babies” — to make them into better people, sparking an outcry among critics who claim such morally repugnant practices would be akin to playing God. Embryos that do not qualify for life in his view, such as those whose genetic make-up is perceived to indicate potential future “personality flaws,” would presumably be destroyed.

Savulescu wrapped his argument in pseudo-compassionate language, claiming he simply wanted the best for children, parents, society, and the human race. Plus, he argued, some people already screen their future children for diseases before deciding whether or not to abort them, so using DNA and bio-technology to enhance people’s personality traits is not actually a very big leap. ...

hard facts, au contraire, I was not speaking of such theories, but rather explaining that the evangelical church is very much at peace with mainstream science. You may be reading into things a little too much, good day.

You know I am quite convinced that with some intelligent and honest research you could probably come up with a more genuine and realistic analysis.
All this conspiracy theorising must be bad for your health, jpw.

we are so deeply immersed in it that we are insulted by someone who comes along and says they cured their diabetes through God's seed.....

"Come on now, the doctor told me its genetic, its all about genetics, its my fate, I'm genetically defective and there's nothing I can do about it."

ya, let's celebrate our eugenics and do nothing, because it is fate!

remember its all time and chance??

ya, next time at the next church potluck, go to the podium and announce that tonight we will eat fresh, natural foods prepared lovingly in the home, and avoid the sugars and chemical additives because we've known for generations that sugar feeds diabetes and infections.

"How dare you! This is a medical condition! If I want to feed the same things to my grandkids, its my right!"

well, ok, you get out what you put in.

"Embryos that do not qualify for life in his view, such as those whose genetic make-up is perceived to indicate potential future “personality flaws,” would presumably be destroyed."

Ah! Obviously Hitlerism is still alive and well in Oxford University.

I'll lay odds that this guy votes Liberalism...

Quote; 2.
"Of course, that argument is hardly new. National Socialist (Nazi) Germany under Adolf Hitler as well as Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger relied on a similar philosophy — known as eugenics, though the term is rarely used now due to its negative connotations — to advance their vision of “cleansing” the human gene pool. Both argued that “race” and intelligence should be used as criteria"

Prov 16:27 An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips there is as a burning fire.
30 He shutteth his eyes to devise froward things: moving his lips he bringeth evil to pass.
21:10 The soul of the wicked desireth evil: his neighbour findeth no favour in his eyes.

Isn't. Mr Savulescu so smart, kind and full of compassion. Why he should be God! Why didn't the Almighty think of designer children..............Now all Savulescu has to do is find a way to make these designer kids without a sin nature!
