Boon to Mankind

Enterprise - - Letters -

As a biotech­nol­ogy stu­dent, I wish to say that this new tech­nol­ogy is a boon to our na­tion. Ge­netic en­gi­neer­ing is an up­com­ing area in our coun­try to serve and save our peo­ple from prob­lems. One such prob­lem is in­her­ited dis­eases. If this tech­nol­ogy is im­ple­mented in all na­tions, surely it will be an­other great leap for mankind. It says that it opens the way to the pos­si­bil­ity of ‘designer ba­bies’ in fu­ture. Sci­en­tists have fi­nally reached a mile­stone in giv­ing women an in­valu­able choice to be­come moth­ers with­out fear of pass­ing a life­time un­der the shadow of mi­to­chon­drial dis­ease to their child. Apart from re­li­gious views, it is a great tech­nol­ogy.
