    I totally don't think that gene changing is a good idea. It is totally taking away everything unique from the world. Like Hitler wanted, blond hair, blue eyes, all around. Who likes that? I think that this is just changing peoples lives from how God wanted them to be. Science... playing God. God made us how he wanted us, and that is that!!!

    If we can cure existing diseases, or save lives, then we should definitely do it. Jesus healed people. Why shouldn't we give people the best chance at a full life? If murder is one of the worst sins, the surely saving lives and giving a long healthy capable life is the direct opposite.

    However, changing what it means to be human - that's going tor far and of course is playing God.

    Big 12 Call Yet -

    'No doubt many Mormons would have criticized this had it been a non-religious couple will now be ok with what this Mormon couple did.'

    I don't think your comment is accurate. I doubt many Mormons would condemn genetic editing prior to pregnancy as a course of action. Furthermore, I don't think it makes any difference at all whether the subjects of this article were Mormon, Catholic, Protestant, Atheist, or whatever. I would guess that us Mormons would be more upset with aborting a fetus that had genetic problems, although that decision would be left up to the perspective parents. I think we're far less judgmental than you've portrayed.
