Parents Playing God

A recent article by ABC News announced: “New Tech Allows Parents Genetic ‘Preview’ Before Conception,” but there is not much in the article about the moral implications or ramifications of this kind of action. I will not write much more about this. I will only say: Gattaca (1997). See the Movie. Then, think.

Like Gattaca, I will present the following biblical quotation:

Ecclesiastes 7:13 “Consider what God has done: Who can straighten what He has made crooked?”
