No extraterrestrial power shall take, possess, or manipulate human biological or genetic material for any purpose whatsoever.
– The Declaration of Human Sovereignty
Our genetic code is sacred. It’s what makes us human rather than something else. Humanity has just begun to explore the opportunities and dangers of this new power. How far will we go with it? What will a human being look like in 500 years? It’s anyone’s guess, but one thing’s for certain: humans should be firmly in control of our genetic destiny. This is sadly not the case today.
