If You Think the Family Is on Shaky Ground Now . . .

 . . . just wait until this becomes a reality:

'London (CNN) -- The United Kingdom took a step Friday toward being the first country in the world to allow a pioneering in vitro fertilization technique using DNA from three people that could prevent mitochondrial diseases but that also raises significant ethical issues.'

This opens the door not only to a destruction of the natural family (three genetic parents) but also to a corruption of humanity by the creation of 'super humans' through the artificial winnowing of 'bad' genes from the 'good' genes.  It is but one more example (among a legion of others) why we must place science and technology within very strict bounds.
