After a Chinese scientist created a big controversy by altering the embryos of twins to make them immune to HIV, a group of international scientists have demanded a worldwide ban on editing genes to make the designer babies.

The researchers have been emphasizing the necessity to ban on editing DNA of living humans because they believe that there’s a necessity to slow down the ‘most adventurous plans to re-engineer the human species.

However, some of the researchers have come in support, some felt it’s neither necessary to ban. Though the countries will decide on what their scientists should do, the editing DNA for research purposes in labs would still be permitted.
