When IVF and other reproductive technologies started being used, it was agreed that germline should never be altered. UK's recent approval of nuclear transfer to prevent mitochondrial disorders carves out an exception to the prohibition on human inheritable genetic modification. Some argue that this could be the first step to making genetic modification/improvement acceptable... Will we leap from “correcting disease” to “duty to enhance” human beings?
