If you could, would you choose your baby's sex, hair and eye color, height and other attributes?
Well, according to BBC News, scientist have seen huge gains and "improvements in genetics are causing designer babies to near '100 per cent efficiency' in trials using mice, a leading scientist has warned."
Dr. Tony Perry, a geneticist at the University of Bath, believes that society needs to be prepared for the day parents can choose certain traits in their children, according to BBC.
You could one day have a genetically modified baby, where you choose all types of beauty traits and intelligence — and maybe even more important genetic mortification to make your baby free of inherited diseases.
