Chinese scientist claims to have created the world's first genetically edited BABIES - twin girls altered to resist infection with the HIV virus

'A scientist has claimed to have helped create the world's first 'genetically-modified' humans during laboratoy work in China.

Twin DNA of twin girls was altered with a powerful new tool capable of rewriting the very blueprint of life, the Chinese researcher claims.

Laboratory work was carried out with the intention of giving the as yet unborn babies the ability to resist possible future infection with HIV, the AIDS virus.

Gene editing is banned in Britian, the US many other parts of the world, with one expert insisting the process was "not morally or ethically defensible." Spam_A Spam_B The researcher, He Jiankui of Shenzhen, said he altered embryos for seven couples during fertility treatments, with one pregnancy resulting thus far. He said his goal was not to cure or prevent an inherited disease, but to try to bestow a trait that few people naturally have - an ability to resist possible future infection with HIV, the AIDS virus.

He said the parents involved declined to be identified or interviewed, and he would not say where they live or where the work was done.

There is no independent confirmation of He's claim, and it has not been published in a journal, where it would be vetted by other experts.

He revealed it Monday in Hong Kong to one of the organizers of an international conference on gene editing that is set to begin Tuesday, and earlier in exclusive interviews with The Associated Press.'

Has China arrested its scientist who claimed to have genetically engineered human babies?

'Chinese scientist He Jiankui made a bold move last week when he published a video about a successful gene editing surgery on a human baby. After appearing in Hong Kong at the Second International Summit on Human Genome Editing, Jiankui has been reported missing. Was he arrested by Chinese authorities? Was he murdered or perhaps abducted? His whereabouts are suddenly unknown. One report says he was placed under house arrest in Shenzhen after attending the conference, but another report from the China Morning Post tells otherwise. According to the Post, his former employer, the Southern University of Science and Technology, dismissed the detention claims, declining to elaborate on his whereabouts.

How will Jiankui and his research be used in the future? Will it be banned or used for specific purposes? Are perfect “disease-free” genetically engineered babies a possibility?

“Disease-free” genetically engineered babies a possibility?

Just a week ago, Jiankui publicly claimed to have successfully engineered the genome of a human baby. Now dubbed the “Chinese Frankenstein,” Jiankui is making his best pitch for the ethical use of genetic engineering on human babies. During invitro fertilization, Jiankui and a team of scientists introduced “proteins and instructions” to genetically engineer the DNA of twins so they would resist HIV infection from their father’s genome. The team of scientists used a DNA editing tool called Crispr-Cas9 to eliminate a gene called CCR5.

Jiankui claims “gene surgery” should be a tool to help heal families; however, the experiment opens up a Pandora’s Box. Will wealthy families soon be able to choose designer traits for their future children? How will human genetic engineering be regulated and enforced? Will there be a black market for genetic engineering of human babies or will the technology be embraced by future medical communities? If allowed, will altered DNA damage other genes and cause dangerous mutations that may be passed down to future generations?'

Narnia Author Warned About Genetically Edited Babies 74 Years Ago
http://www.theorganicprepper.com/narnia-genetically-edited-babies





'C.S. Lewis, beloved author of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe had an important warning about genetically edited babies…and he said it 74 years ago – in 1944.

The Internet is enraptured that science may have crossed yet another threshold: another gene-edited baby greets the world.

The first genetically edited babies have already have been born.

Yet many scientists are condemning the news that a Chinese scientist recently used CRISPR gene-editing technology on twin girl embryos to prevent them from potentially contracting HIV and AIDS viruses. Believe it or not, many countries including China and the United States do not allow genetic editing on babies because it could pass on untold consequences through the genetic line. Spam_A Spam_B Of course, there have been exceptions.

Speaking at a genome summit in Hong Kong, scientist He Jiankui declared he was proud to alter the genes of twin girls so that they could not contract HIV.

While his claims have not been verified, Jiankui says he created the “world’s first genetically edited babies” who were allegedly born this month.

“It’s scary,” said Dr. Alexander Marson, a gene-editing expert at the University of California. Other scientists in the field are horrified as well, and He’s university, the Southern University of Science and Technology in Shenzhen said it will launch an investigation. He is on unpaid leave, but that doesn’t change the fact that genetically edited babies are here.'
