Genetically Modified 

The creation of a child is a beautiful and unique process, one that has recently been corrupted as designer babies have been introduced to the world. A designer baby is a baby whose genetic makeup has been selected in order to get rid of a particular defect, or to ensure that a particular gene is present. The ability to have control over the makeup of your baby is unethical. The invention of designer babies is one the world could do without. Designer babies will continue to make society obsess over the idea of having a perfect child; as well as modify the upcoming generations which later on could affect evolution.

Perfection is the next biggest epidemic society will face. The obsession with the thought of being perfect is contagious. As the study of designer babies becomes more advanced it does nothing but prove my point. Now that the opportunity to create the ideal baby has come upon society, the infatuation of the perfect child will drive most parents mad. If we fast forward and think of the effects of having a designer baby, the future generations will all be the same; with no individuality and genes of their own the future kids will all be carbon-copies.All children are perfect without their genetic makeup being changed.I believe designer babies are doing nothing but increasing the obsession over perfection, without the designer babies our future generations will be unique and special in their own way.  

Modifying children’s genetic makeup could change our ability to adapt to the changing world around us as humans, this is known as evolution. As designer babies are bread we begin to lose individuality as mentioned above. Diversity is something this world does not lack, but with the production of these babies we will start to lose our diversity. Without diversity evolution can become a very tedious process. Evolution is a natural process, without the ability to choose from different species, it will be harder to see what species adapts best to the changing environment. Evolution has allowed us to see the different people we see today. The imperfections of others can be translated to their way of evolving to adapt to the changing environment around them. genetically similar people does not give us room to evolve as the human species. Genetically creating your baby won’t allow the human species to evolve naturally. Our world doesn’t need the ability to genetically makeup babies because not only will it affect the child but the human species as a whole.

All things considered, the process of creating a child is beautiful and unique, designer babies have begin to tamper with this naturally occurring process. Society as a whole would be better off without the invention of genetically modified children. Designer babies will continue to make society obsess over the idea of having a perfect child; as well as modify the upcoming generations which later on could affect evolution.Genetically modified children will corrupt society.
