The bio-luddites and technophobes are already coming out of the woodworks or rather have been entrenching for a few years now just look at Leon Kass, Francis Fukuyama, etc. It will only become more pronounced as time goes on. Those who support allowing these measures, experiments, and advancements to proceed unhindered will have to fight a bit harder for it I think.
    Never fear, my wife is in R and D.

    I get a little sick of being called names for not wanting rush to judgement on new fangled products and procedures. If this particular service turns out to be the breeding ground for some horrible *new* disease or disorder, you'll be eating a chit load of crow and these fertility scientists will be on to their next 'discovery'.

    Listen to any of these pharmaceutical commercials for this and that and hear how many different ways they can maim or kill you. But as long as it 'helps' a couple of the lucky ones.......

    I'm not against anything that helps make life better for the human race however. it want to make damn sure it's properly tested and sure we're not being used as guinea pigs in the process.

    I hope they isolated the 36D gene and recreated it in females.

    70% of today's medicines came from botanical sources:

    70% of new drugs come from Mother Nature

    Sounds like we need to look at what nature has to offer rather than shun her.

    That apply to everyone that wants to have their own biological children, or just people who need help to accomplish it?

    Everyone who goes above and beyond nominal biological concerns to achieve children when adoption was viable the entire time. I'm not going to stop people from doing it, I just think that it's rather selfish. If you can't have kids, there are plenty...and The Rock means PLENTY, of orphans to adopt. Being selfish, however, is not illegal.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
