the ethics of genetici engineering is very complex.  If one allows the
possibility of it at all - which I happen to wher do you then draw lines
- to what extent can you manipulate the DNA of animals ?  What about
humans ?  Is gene therapy in humans OK ? Is there a reason to
distinguish between therapeutic and non-therapeutic ends - that is, is
it OK to work towards helping provide a therapy for cystic fibrosis and
not right to manipulate genes to produce greater linguistic ability or
blue eyes ? These and many more questions...
