Chinese scientists are creating CRISPR babies

When Chinese researchers first edited the genes of a human embryo in a lab dish in 2015, it sparked global outcry and pleas from scientists not to make a baby using the technology, at least for the present.

It was the invention of a powerful gene-editing tool, CRISPR, which is cheap and easy to deploy, that made the birth of humans genetically modified in an in vitro fertilization (IVF) center a theoretical possibility.

The claim that China has already made genetically altered humans comes just as the world’s leading experts are jetting into Hong Kong for the Second International Summit on Human Genome Editing.

The purpose of the international meeting is to help determine whether humans should begin to genetically modify themselves, and if so, how. That purpose now appears to have been preempted by the actions of He, an elite biologist recruited back to China from the US as part of its ...

The answer is likely yes, it did affect their brains,” says Alcino J. Silva, a neurobiologist at the University of California, Los Angeles, whose lab uncovered a major new role for the CCR5 gene in memory and the brain’s ability to form new connections.

“The simplest interpretation is that those mutations will probably have an impact on cognitive function in the twins,” says Silva. He says the exact effect on the girls’ cognition is impossible to predict, and “that is why it should not be done.”

... Where is Dr He?

The day after his last public appearance at the summit, Beijing responded strongly to the gene-editing incident.

Heads of the State Health and Health Commission, the Ministry of Science and Technology, and China Association for Science and Technology said the incident was "extremely abominable" and the relevant units had been asked to suspend their scientific research activities....

Why don't they work on something really important, like making a small machine to enable you to make Frosty's at home? That would be much better than the coffee espresso machines and those Belgian waffle makers, and the soda-stream ones.

...Whether the experiment was successful or not, it’s intensely controversial. Scientists have already begun using CRISPR and other gene-editing technologies to alter human cells, in attempts to treat cancers, genetic disorders, and more. But in these cases, the affected cells stay within a person’s body. Editing an embryo is very different: It changes every cell in the body of the resulting person, including the sperm or eggs that would pass those changes to future generations. Such work is banned in many European countries, and prohibited in the United States.... [ ]

Even a lot of liberals, QC, don't like this idea!

When contrasted with the other article posted today about science confirming a real Adam and Eve, this simply looks like another Tower of Babel. We can be our own gods, who needs the real God? We can make ourselves to be who we want to be, rather than

Know ye that even the Lord is God; he hath made us, and not we ourselves: we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. - Psalm 100:3
