World's first genetically modified babies born

"The world's first geneticallymodified humans have been created, it was revealed last night.

The disclosure that 30 healthy babies were born after a series of experiments in the United States provoked another furious debate about ethics.

So far, two of the babies have been tested and have been found to contain genes from three 'parents'."

This article is from 2001 and most are just talking about it now. Mainly because these human guinea pigs are now on the threshold of being capable of reproducing themselves. Problem is many times the outcomes are unknown once the gene mutates upon further generations. Time will tell. The link below is pretty critical of the matter.
