In today's technologically advanced world, scientists possess the ability to genetically engineer the DNA of nearly anything from potatoes to human beings. As each day goes by humans strive closer and closer to the art of perfection. Disabilities can be rehabilitated, deformations can be reformed, and diseases can be remedied all through the means of genetic engineering. With this knowledge taken to consideration, the question stands then of why we shouldn’t genetically engineer the future generations to eradicate major flaws. This would result in less mental illnesses, less physical deformities, and more genetically perfect human beings. All these things are good things right? Not necessarily, the use of genetic engineering in humans would lead to the artificial selection of more superior groups resulting in a societal schism. The wealthy would get more and more perfect while the middle class would become more flawed. Although a utilitarian approach would support the use of genetic engineering thinking it would lead to maximum aggregate happiness, in reality, the opposite is true.
