Designer Babies

Many genetic scientists are uncomfortable with the idea of "designer babies," and for good reason. There is no way to predict which gene will provide the crucial mutation at the crucial moment in species adaptation, and tinkering with the gene pool necessarily limits one of the most important factors in species survival, namely diversity. No joking matter.--Professor Fouke, 80 and on it.
