Designer Babies

March 2, 2021

If we use CRISPR technology to improve, modify, delete or add DNA to a fetus, have we benefited or harmed our species? In this episode, Dr. Francoise Baylis, a bioethicist, walks us through the safety, efficacy and ethics we should consider when creating designer babies.

Baylis is the 2021 Chair of the Wayne L. Morse Center for Law and Politics at the University of Oregon.
