Abstract

Gene editing of human embryos is an interdisciplinary topic regarding science, ethics, religion, socioeconomics, and law. The overall goal of gene editing for human embryos should be to treat genetically inherited diseases. This can be a questionable thing to do to a human both ethically and religiously. To make matters worse, gene editing of human embryos may potentially be used for cosmetic or physical reasons not pertaining to medical problems. There are many possibilities of harm to humans due to the current misuse and effectiveness of human embryo editing.
