"Ethics": This Was Inevitable

British scientist can genetically modify human embryos, ethics committee says
British "ethics" decisions have long been a study in Hegelian slippery slope modifications. Taking one step further into the abyss every year, the committee has abandoned all concepts of stability in ethics, and has slid steadily into the trade-offs of how many lives sacrificed might be balanced by the knowledge gained in their extinction. How does this vary from the Mengele approach? It is the same in kind, varying only in the age of the humans being sacrificed. The British are still at the embryonic stage so far. But what with the slope getting steeper every year, we can expect that to expand as they determine that other ages may be expendable in the search for knowledge. Unless it is stopped, it will expand exponentially. Government grants seem to do that.

N. I. C. E. would approve, I'm sure.
