Scientists worry that once a species is modified, it is changed forever.

Back in 1987 in a lab in Osaka, Japan the discovery of A clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats DNA sequence system or what is more commonly known as CRISPR sent shockwaves through the science community because of the chaotic modifications it could cause on human DNA. Now, Chinese scientists at the Southern University of Science and Technology In Shenzhen are attempting to create the first gene-edited babies. Utilizing CRISPR, they intend on eliminating a gene known as CCR5 and creating genetically modified babies resistant to HIV, smallpox, and cholera. But does the bad outweigh the good? Scientists worry that once a species is modified, it is changed forever.
