R: Next time we'll do in vitro, so we can weed out all the bad stuff.
Me: Yeah, I'm not really down with that. It's like messing with nature.
R: Yeah, um, everyone who has in vitro is sort of messing with nature. Plus, we could decide if we want a boy or a girl depending on which this one is.
Me: I don't think they can do that yet.
R: Yeah, it's probably illegal.
Me: I don't think it's illegal. Unethical and immoral possibly, but I'm not sure it's illegal. For now, I think people are still weirded out enough by genetically building a baby to agree that even if we could do it, we shouldn't. I'm sure that will change though.
R: Yeah, people will get used to the idea and then everyone will want genetically perfect babies.
Me: They'll probably be picking out hair and eye color some day too. A bunch of blond haired, blue-eyed babies running around.
R: (blinking)
Me: (blinking)
Me: Yeah, that was kind of what Hitler was after huh?
