This is pretty scary. I don't think we fully comprehend what it can really do and what can go wrong. I get the race to be the first but there should be some ethics on how it's done.

I'm generally a supporter of scientific advancement but this is where I draw the line. Scary stuff indeed.

What I hate about it is that the ethics of gene editing hasn't been fully fleshed out yet and yet they're already doing it just so they can be head of the curve.
