Personally, I'd love to affect genetic optimization of my offspring. But
I think we need to be aware of the issues that arise: For example, the
'haves' will have 'better' offspring, while the 'have-nots' won't be able
afford all the 'kinder-mods'.
The haves already endow their children with better DNA. Good looks, good
health, intelligence, and personality highly heritable. And successful
do already have children who are better than average, while convicted felons
welfare moms tend to have children who are below average.
I don't have a good answer, just a comparison or two:
Private School vs. Public School, Private Healthcare vs. Public
* Agreed. The issue doesn't 'arise', it already exists. Good points.
