New Hastings Conversations Podcast: Should We Genetically Enhance Human Beings?

It has long been an ethical line not to be crossed: genetically enhancing humans – making us faster, smarter, or even kinder – in a way that is passed down to future generations. But that line maybe fading. Today, there is active discussion around the world about whether we should make heritable “improvements” to the human genome. In the latest Hastings Conversations podcast, Hastings Center president Mildred Solomon speaks with director of research Josephine Johnston about the ethical challenges of using gene editing techniques for human enhancement.
