Designer Babies and Gene Robbery
Want the perfect baby? Now you have to cross your fingers and hope for the best. But imagine if you could go down to the local baby clinic and max out your credit card. You could ensure your child was beautiful and intelligent. You could even guarantee they would never become an alcoholic. It may sound far fetched but the groundwork is already in place. But what are the dangers of tinkering with our genetic makeup? Who owns human genes and should they be allowed to sell them to the highest bidder? This eye opening film explores the conflict between private commerce and public health.
