CRISPR is a group formed by notable biologists in the world, who earlier called for the cease on the use of gene editing technique on humans.
CRISPR vows that technology may not be the solution to overcome mortality. In the quest for the eradication of dangerous diseases like cancer, HIV, Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s, and much more could help prevent children born with any such ailments.
Facts about Gene Editing
The scientific community appears to be fine on the fact that gene editing can overcome life taking diseases is ethically fine to go ahead as long as the technology, on the whole, is considered safe for use in humans. Nevertheless, taking into account that gene editing could hypothetically be applied to create techno babies, prevent aging or fight against diseases and much other life-threatening challenges. Just one published study describes genome editing of human germ cells. The law on editing human germ cells varies wildly across the world. You don’t have to be a pro to hack genomes. Cas9 is not the only enzyme in town. Pigs are on the front line of genome-editing experiments. Gates, Google and DuPont want a piece of the genome-editing action. The CRISPR–Cas9 system is at the centre of a patent row.
Belief of Transhumanists in Science
Transhumanists believe that science is the basis for being a transhumanist and science is the only supreme power to conquer death. If considering CRISPR as a very vital toolkit that can be edited to create a powerful future generation which can go beyond the natural biological strength. Many H+ groups have earlier opposed the editing of genes, but later Zoltan Istvan assured that CRISPR has a greater impact for the coming generations.
Though many groups take into account that gene editing many erase human generations, but looking at the positive attributes win over the dangers, Transhumanism may be the way to overcome death. With the help of CRISPR, we can delay deathly diseases in humans and ensure that the next generations are born super strong and powerful.
