    perspective of a character like Vincent. Rather than simply boost the human body’s health standard, the standards are both lifted and a new source of prejudice.

    In the beginning of the 20th century, the human mind was much more inclined to search for scientific answers to society’s problems by perfecting the human race by applying the laws of genetic heredity. In 1883, Sir Francis Galton, a respected British scientist, first used the term Eugenics, “the study of all agencies under human control which can improve or impair the racial quality of future generations.” He believed that the human race could help direct its future by selectively breeding…

    Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a method used prior to implantation to help identify genetic defects within embryos created through in vitro fertilization. This procedure is used to help prevent particular diseases or disorders from being passed on to the infant (American Pregnancy Association).

    I believe that if there is no set limits on how far human genetic engineering can go, then we may be heading down the rabbit hole into Pandora’s box. With no thought as to the consequences, not to mention the ethics involved, it might be a world like in the movie Gattaca, where supposedly there was no genetic discrimination but in reality the genetic beings had more rights and privileges than the non-genetic beings. With designer people controlling the fate of the non-designer people, looking…
