Let’s back up just a second and look at what they are proposing to do — They’re proposing to try to create disease-free children by a type of genetic engineering. And the proposals aren’t actually to treat anybody; they’re to create new individuals that they hope won’t have a disease….

Trying to create and destroy and recreate genetically engineered children, essentially designer babies, is a completely unethical way to go about tackling this problem [of treating disease].

~ Dr. David Prentice of the Family Research Council, discussing the FDA’s consideration of technology to create three-parent babies, as quoted by One News Now, March 3

[Note: Gattaca is a 1997 sci-fi film which “presents a… vision of a future society driven by eugenics where potential children are conceived through genetic manipulation to ensure they possess the best hereditary traits of their parents.”]
