While genetic alterations or genetic editing is still pretty new to the world of medicine, it is quickly becoming a major asset to science. Within the next twenty years, it is possible that normal adults like you and I could edit our genes to remove possible illnesses. Right now, we’re able to remove things like hereditary diseases from an unborn child’s genome. Due to this being possible right now, just imagine how much more we’ll be able to do over the next few decades. By the time artificial wombs are here, editing will be far more advanced. These wombs will likely also allow us to apply editing to a child in the developmental process. For example, if we’re seeing signs of autism developing in their genome, we can remove this before it becomes an issue. However, limitations will need to be put in place to avoid abuse.
