What do you guys think about individuals being able to go into fertility clinics and pick out traits that they wish their baby to possess (eye color, skin color, hair texture, etc.)?

Sounds like a good idea.

You mean artificial selection? Or genetic engineering?

"Designer Babies" We as a society will deserve the abominations that we will produce "when" we take this path.
Beware of the people who are in your circle but are not in your corner.

And with the stroke of a pen people 18 to 21 who own a gun became criminals and public enemy #1 having committed no crime and having said nothing. Just like the Jews in Germany during WW2. Must be a weird feeling.

When I hear people crying and whining about their first world problems I think about the universe with everything in it and people in wheelchairs and all of their problems go away.

Fertility clinics should be outlawed in the first place. If you can't have children naturally, adopt. Plenty of babies need a home and loving parents.
