  1. Not on animals. Just recently, a working embryo of the result of crossing a human and a pig was created. It is clear that he was not kept alive for more than 10 days, but nevertheless. On humans, these experiments are forbidden because of what seems to me to be a stupid statement that experiments on people are not ethical.�
    Two years ago, by the way, an experiment was conducted in Mexico, when the composition of mitochondria was changed to the embryo so that the child would be born healthy(due to a rare mother's disease, she could not give birth to a healthy child before). It was in Mexico that such experiments were allowed, so they conducted it there, although the scientist who conducted the experiment would have been safely imprisoned in the United States, where he comes from.�
    Before the people who banned genetic experiments on people, there was a problem that the resulting creatures as a result of modifications would not be people, and here, allegedly, there should be a problem of identification.

  2. it seems to me that lifting such a ban will open a Pandora's box. the expansion of the boundaries of what is allowed will occur on an increasing scale, and it will no longer be possible to draw a restrictive line.�

    for example, to correct the eye color of an unborn child, is it great? “why not?” ensure that he doesn't have a genetic disease? – here it is, science for the benefit of humanity! and speed up, for example, tissue regeneration by 20 times? and build muscle mass? and get night vision? and increase the life time under water?.. in the long run, all this leads to the emergence of super-races and their capture of classical humanity. wahh-ha-hah!

    I am, of course, an undisputed fan of science fiction, but do not forget that now we consider the norm to be the norm that was the most daring or absurd fiction just a couple of hundred years ago
