Scientists have called for a global ban on the use of technology of gene editing CRISPR

Last year, the Chinese geneticist Hae Cisangkuy, despite the ban in force in the territory of China, had a very, very questionable from the standpoint of morality and ethics of experiment on gene editing of human embryonic cells, resulting in the light appeared first Gemini with the edited genome. About his work he Cisangkuy shared at the Second international summit on genetic editing. Very soon most of the world’s academic community condemned the actions of Hae. And the Chinese government even opened a criminal case on him.

In response to the growing concern about premature introduction of the technology of gene editing in clinical practice, a group of 18 scientists from 7 countries, including two developers of the technology for genome editing CRISPR/Cas, Emmanuelle Charpentier and Feng Zhang, have called for the introduction of a global ban on the use of genetic editing viable human embryos for the birth of CRISPR-people. An open letter calling to ban the use of this technology for at least the next 5 years, it was published in the scientific journal Nature.

The authors of the Manifesto understand a temporary moratorium as a voluntary waiver of such experiments until you confidently execute a number of conditions. For example, the authors point to the mandatory informing of the international community before approving such experiments, a transparent review of applications to conduct such experiments, and discussions in society about the propriety of such experiments.

“Countries may choose a different approach, but they must agree to work openly and respectfully to public opinion on the issue, which ultimately concerns the whole species,” the scientists write.

The authors particularly emphasize that the moratorium should not touch the edit of embryos for research purposes without replanting them into the uterus, and also editing of somatic cells to treat diseases.

“Although the technology in the last few years developing, edit the cells of the germ line are still insufficiently safe or effective to use it for clinical purposes. The scientific community agrees that such use risks necessary changes or unforeseen mutations is still unacceptably high. In this direction is significant research work”, — stated in the published document.

The authors also believe that it is necessary to understand the difference between genetic editing to protect from potential diseases, and editing aimed at strengthening certain genetic parameters in humans. According to scientists, the issue of protecting the unborn child from potential disease is more complex and requires more in-depth discussion. But the edit genes to enhance certain abilities, at least at this stage of development of the technology of genetic modification, the report’s authors believe is completely unacceptable.

Scientists remind us that today’s couples with a high risk of transmitting a mutation that causes a particular disease, there is a possibility of in vitro fertilization and preimplantation genetic diagnosis. The authors of the Manifesto believe that the improvement of these procedures is currently the most secure way of preventing transmission of genetic diseases.

Scientists also emphasize the need to involve a wide public opinion on the issue of gene editing. The rapporteurs believe that the decisions of such experiments should not only be accepted by the scientific community. In addition, they call all the independent scientists and scientific organizations who became aware of such experiments or the plans for their implementation, to communicate this information to the General public. As a negative example, the rapporteurs cite the case of Hae, there were people who knew about his work, but they did nothing to stop.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast
