CRISPR Gene Editing Technology and Faux Outrage: So Long as You Kill Them

Last autumn, a Chinese scientist named Dr. He ignited a rhetorical firestorm when he announced he'd used the technology CRISPR to genetically alter human embryos, which were implanted and brought to birth.

The announcement was quickly followed by hand-wringing, outrage and condemnation from scientists around the world, including the same ones in the United States who had created CRISPR in the first place, not to mention let it loose into the world with little more ethical guidance than "now, play nice."

Since then, the only people who seem to have responded with any seriousness to He's transgression is his now-former employer, the Southern University of Science and Technology in China.

According to a recent report on National Public Radio, "A scientist in New York is conducting experiments designed to modify DNA in human embryos as a step toward someday preventing ...
