This isn't a dystopian young adult novel. Where did he get that idea? As far as I know, that kind of genetic manipulation is still controversial, if not downright illegal.

But it's not the truth. "Test tube babies" are made using the genetics of the parent. Whether OP is attractive and talented or not, it was a dumb fuck thing for her boyfriend to say.

#61 Actually we can, and we have done so with other animals. We don't do it on humans yet because it is still considered "immoral". We even found a way to switch a gene on to make us 100% more muscular and durable. Again, we don't do it on humans yet because the scientists fear backlash for moral issues.

The idiot boyfriend mistook "test tube" with "genetically engineered embryo". The former has been around for about 30 years now. The latter has been tested extensible but not perfected yet to make a "super baby". And nope is not sci-fi anymore but not a complete reality either.

IVFis the process of removing a woman's eggs and taking a male's sperm sample, artificially fertilizing them on a lab, and then placing the fertilized egg back in the woman. It's designed to help combat infertility and other problems conceiving so a couple can still have a baby that's genetically yours

I think there was a news article where around 20 or so children had this happened to them at a time when it was legal. After that they were like nope, not anymore.

Without getting to much into it, I believe you are talking about screening and selectively avoiding genetic disorders, which is legal. We do this on both natural and artificially made humans. PKUs in California are mandatory and covered by the state.

Widespread genetic manipulation could rid the world of morons... this site would get boring. Unless they used their skills to build a more robust moron, but then they would likely be confused by the big words.

He isn't just any idiot. The greatest minds of this generation came together with the express purpose of making the dumbest idoit they could, and you just put him in charge of the entire facility.

It's not illegal at all.. It is immoral. Rich people genetically alter babies sometimes so that way they have certain hair color or eye color.. Your dumb for what you just said. Go back to biology

DocBastard where are you?! Clearly we need one of your lessons on whether genetic/DNA altering is actually 100% possible, still being researched, or complete myth. **shines DocBastard symbol into cloudy night sky**

With today's tecnology we have the ability to put any gene in almost any species. We can clone we can do almost anything with genes. I think that gene altering is illegal in the Us, Uk, and Australia, but not Russia.

Aww love to hear ignorance in the morning. Try explaining the methodology of the procedure to him. If that doesn't work, please refrain from reproducing with this gentleman.

If my significant other said that to me I would laugh my ass off. I would never get into a relationship where somebody would treat me that way lol. You learn these kinds of traits before you begin your relationship, hence dating. I'd probably respond with some other witty quip.
