The results from a question asked for the first time in 2018 about whether respondents would want–or would want their wives–to have an abortion if it was revealed that the unborn baby would have “genetic defects” follows.

Is it surprising that the first CRISPR baby came out of the East? As the center of the world reorients (heh) away from the Occident and back towards the Orient, the ethical hangups about what is derisively referred to as eugenics will increasingly become a sideshow curiosity on the global stage, much like Brunei’s gayless treatment of gays is today.
On the other hand, with some Islamic exceptions, Asian fertility is the lowest in the world. When it comes to making babies, the perfect very conceivably can be the enemy of the good.
