Technology downsides should be debated first

Abstract:
"Well, doctor, we want her to be tall, musically gifted and cancer-risk minimized. We'll take the Pleasant Personality Package, too." Designer children are a science-fiction cliche, but Bill McKibben thinks they may be just around the corner. And in "Enough: Staying Human in an Engineered Age," he argues the "germ-line" genetic engineering needed to produce them is a Pandora's Box that humans must seal shut forever before it's too late.
