as I have the option to genetically modify my child I would. I don't want to out live my children. In other words I don’t want to to see my child die. I would love for my child to out live me.

The real Jerome tried to commit suicide because he got second place in a swimming race when he was built to be the perfect human. Then at the end he actually killed himself.(Source B) Vincent the main character in GATTACA had a heart condition, he was only supposed to live until 30 but he said he was 10000 beats overdue.(Source B) There are some risks being that the technology is very new. “Why should anyone have the right to deliberately and irreversibly engineer the biology of generations to come?

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
