I do not think it should be used to create geniuses or odd balls. If people have Neurological Disorders it should be used to repair their deficits and brains. It should be used to help autistic people and anyone with a Neurological Disability.

CRISPR is far from ready to do this but, I agree. It should never be used to make "designer" babies, but to eradicate diseases and other congenital flaws, as in disabilities.
I also think that when we do these things, they should be done the way Nature would do them.
For example, enhancing natural immunity, as opposed to creating something that can't occur in Nature.

I agree in that they look after their own interests and their Party's first. That's all backward.

Your hearing my disgust, contempt and anger with all politicians.
These dam corrupt, immoral politicians only care when lack of cures effect them. We have to take care of American’s. Our deficit could be decreased by cutting the salaries of every over paid senator,congressmen/women, ending their free doctors at congress, making them pay for their insurance as most citizens do and ending their enormous pensions.
They make a fortune. They work few hour, accept enormous bribes do not need, earn or deserve pensions. American tax payers can not fund the world.

I want the synapses, neurons in my son's brain that do not connect properly repaired and I believe they can figure out how. If they investigate the money and time. American's with special needs or incurable diseases should be the priority not illegals or anti U.S. invaders with five wife's an twenty or more children. This is why I despise the L and pray they reap the pain they sow. The extreme R is as bad in some cases but less hypocritical.

I'll leave the political stuff alone, but yeah, I hope they will be able to fix neurological disorders too.
And like you, I believe that will happen.
