Human Embryo Editing

Catholic News Agency writes of growing ethical concerns as to the ever-expanding use of human embryonic gene editing in the pursuit of fighting disease.  Presently the federal government bans the funding of research utilizing human embryos—however it can be conducted using private funding. The FDA prohibits gene modification on viable human embryos which means any genetically modified human embryo must be destroyed rather than brought to term. For those interested in a faith-based perspective read the Catholic News Agency’s article.
