    Yeah, and then was the movie Demolition man with Snipes and Stallone......where they reprogrammed criminals while in suspended Animation. Funny movie. But the gist was they could take out or cause to repress what they classified as violent and criminal tendencies.

    I don't, some of the DP posters are female, and personally, seeing a female with a set of balls would be a bit disgusting.

    Personally, I consider this excellent news and I am disappointed in the Mail that they only chose to print quotes from people opposed to such measures. Because of this scientific breakthrough, thirty families have been blessed with children they could not otherwise have had.

    Fascinating. I shall have to delve into this at length; this could be most significant.

    The most important thing our society needs is to be educated on the issues regarding genetic engineering. We are going to have to make some difficult practical and ethical choices regarding this technology and they cannot be made in ignorance. Don't rely on a sensationalist media or crappy science fiction movies to tell you what to think. At least read the damned wikipedia articles on the topic.

    Darn, I liked Gattaca, ok, the genetic discrimination was bad, but could happen and now you tell me not to rely on it. Pooh. I will still like the movie.
