Definition : Genetic engineering refers to the direct manipulation of DNA to alter an organism’s characteristics (phenotype) in a particular way.
Some questions to reflect:
Imagine you were born as a genetic modified person with some specific traits you don’t like as an adult for example specific eye color, metal capabilities or physical traits. How would you feel ?
Imagine you were born as a male or female but you discover that your parents choose your sex when they genetically modified you at the lab. What happen if you are not happy with that decision knowing that it was a rational decision and not a natural randomized phenomena as it normally is. How would you feel ? What do you think ?
" For the first gene surgery in embryos, the He lab chose one specific gene surgery based on safety and real world patient benefit. First, the gene we chose, CCR5, is one of the best studied genes. More than 100 million people naturally have a genetic variation that disables CCR5, protecting them from HIV. " https://www.npr.org
