I'm wondering if The International Society for Stem Cell Research is going to join the Dolce & Gabbana boycott? Or haven't you heard about the sissy-fit all the D&G pop star customers are having over the designers observation that children conceived with IVF are "synthetic?" Even Ciccone has jumped in the mix. Funny how that word, synthetic, has grown in popularity over the last 100 years.
One might even say that we live in a synthetic age - At lest that's what a group of leading biologists seem to think. And they're sort of concerned about it.
“We need some principled agreement that we want to enhance humans in this way or we don’t,” Dr. Jaenisch said. “You have to have this discussion because people are gearing up to do this.”"Gearing up" indeed.
