"DESIGNER BABY" TECHNOLOGY
2008: Human Genetics Alert discovered that American scientists had created the world's first genetically modified (GM) human embryo the year before without notifying the public or the media. In response, HGA's Director, Dr David King called on the Government to halt its plans to legalise GM embryos in the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill (HFE Bill). HGA and an international group of civil society organisations also called for an international moratorium on such experiments until there has been a full debate."
