I think that CRISPR that is something that absolutely should be used embryonically to cure debilitating life-long diseases.
It is also something that needs to be adopted universally so that every child can recieve the life-saving care that an embryonic gene-edit could give, otherwise we live in the horror world that is Gattaca.
But, if we have the technology to stop babies from being born with Huntington’s disease, ALS, down syndrome, childhood cancers, sickle cell anemia… etc. Why wouldn’t we want to use it? We can make our children healthier, better, and reduce longterm costs of care? It is just plain better for the human race to stop preventable diseases if we can (And this could make those incurable diseases at least preventable).
How much different is the anti-vaccination argument than the anti-gene editing argument?
I also think that the end point of gene editing in children is preventing debilitating diseases, full stop, and it needs to be heavily regulated. The cat is out of the bag now, and we need to move to create controls that we all can live with.
