For many years, the troubling question and debate of genetically growing offspring or food have been a subject of high interest to scientists and the general public. This is because the possibilities of an amazing outcome versus a catastrophic outcome are equally drastic and should be heavily analyzed before action is taken. Genetically growing food has taken place, but not without negative and possibly harmful consequences. The author of a food report on the UK Food Standards Agency, Professor Philips James, states, “The perception that everything is totally straightforward and safe is utterly naive. I don't think we fully understand the dimensions of what we're getting into,” (James). The danger is, if scientists can not safely change the genetics of food, then why risk human lives? Homo sapiens should not genetically grow their offspring because of devastating mistakes that could be made, a new social class resulting in disadvantages to typically born people, and overpopulation. A major reason to not genetically grow offspring is the damaging mistakes that could take place. The pressing issue is that DNA is a …show more content…

Inevitably employers would look for the cream of the crop, the best DNA for specific jobs, eliminating any chance of natural borns, who are still full of potential, to have the occupation they want, much like in the film GATTACA. In the movie GATTACA, it is shown that because of genetically engineered children were created, an entirely new social class was developed. This new social class was not decided by rich or poor, but by the person's DNA.(GATTACA). A person naturally born would be discriminated against and not have the opportunities that child genetically engineered would have. To purposefully create a child to grow stronger than the rest of the natural world would be greatly considered
