Please advocate a global treaty banning all research involving human DNA effective immediately. DNA sequencing research is poised to lead to the first true “designer babies” in the next decade, with traits like enhanced intelligence, health, or personality. An ever-widening gap between people with and without modifications would result. Those who refused would eventually be considered inferior or worse, leading to a caste-based society. The United States has a special responsibility to take action given its leading role in biotechnology. Please go to the United Nations and make a case. Our best chance to keep Pandora’s Box firmly shut is now.
