ENGINEERING LIFE: An Exclusive Interview with Distinguished Prof. George J. Annas (Health Law, Bioethics & Human Rights)
We are on the highway of genetic manipulation, cloning and molecular biotechnology, to the final destination of the engineering of all life.
Today, genetically modified seeds are being promoted to farmers, we have already cloned animals and are, in fact, in the early stages of manipulating human embryos in order to design our progeny.
It would be profoundly unfair to say that all our medical, scientific and technical advancements in this area are being pursued for the sake of power, notoriety and financial gain. The fact is that most of our doctors, scientists and engineers chose their specialties and poured their lives into their particular research because they genuinely wanted to prevent and end human suffering such as disease, physical pain, thirst, hunger, devastation, impediments, desolation, etc.
Still, there are a strong few who love turning these advancements into profit-making schemes, thus tilting the balance dangerously toward destructive tendencies that, ultimately, affect us all. We are all everyday witnesses of how easily and rapidly these destructive tendencies spread…
As we, as an evolving species, have concluded another year of creation, another trend of new beginnings has come, from around the bend, to take its place – another new cycle of potentialities and possibilities. But as every year we wish to gather an abundance of goodness, love, prosperity and opportunity, on the other hand, attachments, in the form of fear, anxiety, anger, and worry, can often take us to an unrelenting state of stagnation.
