Should Parents Be Able to Edit Their Children's Genes?

Ethics in Action

Should parents be given the choice to edit the genes of their unborn children? Or should this practice remain outlawed? This video looks at the arguments for both sides, discussing the He Jiankui affair and CRISPR-Cas9 technology, and explaining concerns over hereditary diseases and designer babies. Nuanced and considered, this is a highly valuable resource for English and Science classrooms, as well as thought-provoking viewing for Philosophy students.
