Mary Shelley's Prediction Comes True

It took a while, but Mary Shelley's prediction-novel has just about come true.

...An influential science advisory group formed by the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Medicine on Tuesday lent its support to a once-unthinkable proposition: clinical efforts to engineer humans with inheritable genetic traits.

In a report laden with caveats and notes of caution, the group endorsed the alteration of human eggs, sperm and embryos...quoted at Z-Man's place

Just because it can be done....right??
