Shades of Gattaca-GMO People Within A year

I am sure the Royals and families that have been breeding too close to the line can breathe a sigh of relief.

By the middle of 2014, the prospect of altering DNA to produce a genetically-modified human could move from science fiction to science reality.  At some point between now and July, the UK parliament is likely to vote on whether a new form of in vitro fertilization (IVF)—involving DNA from three parents—becomes legally available to couples. If it passes, the law would be the first to allow pre-birth human-DNA modification, and another door to the future will open.

In my Genetic and Cellular Biology class I had to watch Gattaca. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gattaca
