Why Aren’t We Gene Editing People To Be Short?

February 9, 2017

Speaking against the motion is the actress Kiruna Stamell who has dwarfism. She tells the Today programme society should be working to make it easier for people to live with a disability and wonders why for global warming’s sake we aren’t gene editing people to be her size.
