I agree! Not using genetic engineering to correct known defects and
diseases is akin to not using any other therapy to treat or cure diseases.
Those who argue against it are no different, in my mind, to those who argued
against using anesthesia in the 19th century or Christian "scientists" who
let their kids die rather than have a blood transfusion.

Thanks for sending it. It's good to see someone famous advocating this
