how can people decide to choose the way that their child looks and what they can do. Say a family has two kids already and they decide that they want a kid that looks a specific way so they spend thousands of dollars to make this child the perfect child in their image how do you think that the other children of that family will feel if their parents slip and say why cant you be more like johnny. and how will those kids feel when the parents like the perfect child more then them how is this fair. children that have their traits picked out by mom and dad will probably feel that they are better then their siblings that have their traits naturally. this is the worst idea ever it will create hate and resentment in the home this should never happen.

Designer Children Are Not Wrong

I would propose that instead of using an appeal to emotion the rights of the parents to choose for their children their traits, internally and externally, is not only a right course of action but also a right in and of itself. The entire purpose for mating is to get the best genes together to create the best offspring (http://beheco.oxfordjournals.org...) suggested by things like the Sexy Son Hypothesis related specifically to the lack of control in genetics. Human technology can take the guesswork out of this process and in turn give rise to parents that love their children and their dream children probably love them as well as they were made to.

Having a child with a deformity would be impossible for instance, curing many human diseases in the process of this technology being applied; the idea of jealousy from other children is at best possibly not even realistic depending on the lottery that was rolled as it is possible and clearly realistic that one can model and be beautiful even without genetic design.
