Last year the UK became the first in the world to offer controversial ‘three-parent’ fertility treatments. This year they approved the use of CRISPR to edit genomes of human embryos.

In the latest episode of BioTalk, we discuss how scientists and governments have re-engineered language to sell the public on embryo-re-engineering (http://www.ncregister.com/daily-news/scientists-governments-re-engineer-language-to-sell-public-on-embryo-re-eng/).

We also look at the long-term implications of genetic enhancement. Specifically, how enhancement leads to coercion and the loss of human dignity (http://www.catholiclane.com/the-seductive-siren-song-of-genetic-enhancement/).
