Editing genes is fascinating with all that can be achieved by a successful edit and this both exhilarating and terrifying. The example I used was about designing CRISPR packages that could delete a natural gene from wild mosquitoes and in a few weeks could have many different diseases totally erased from the face of the earth. This is exhilarating because the possibilities of positive uses getting rid of diseases that have potential for large outbreak in places all of the world such as zika in Brazil, everything in Africa and potentially any animal and any form of disease in the world. This could cause a huge increase in human life which could and most likely would boost economies and allow potential to be turned into something real. The terrifying part of this would be the increase of population which is not always positive (overpopulation) but there is something much worse. The worst part of this would be the potential to turn it negatively and input diseases that could be spread like wild fire and do serious damage to the country or world population.
I feel gene editing should be allowed in moderation and very carefully. When it comes to deleting genes that would keep HIV, cancer, AIDS, and other forms of awfully deadly and spreadable diseases I think it is an amazing thing to introduce to the world. Imputing it though should be moderated in the sense that it should only be used to stop serious disease, not to make the perfect child or person with super human smarts or strength, it should be used to stop disease not overly enhance humans.
