CRISPR research has (publicly) moved into actual genetic editing of human genes to produce — wait for it — Chinese twins. Genetically modified babies are no longer cause for speculation, or at least according to a recent article over at Global Research by Prof. Michel Chossudovsky. (April 28, 2019).
A Chinese biology professor in Shenshen announced that he and his team of biologists had created twin, genetically-edited babies (Luna and Nana) using CRISPR – Cas9 gene-editing technology. Whether or not this is the “World’s first” is unknown at this time. Hey, that’s what they’re saying.
Well, in January the biology professor was fired from his University position. The Chinese government is “investigating.”
There’s another twist to the story. The patent on CRISPR – Cas9 technology isn’t registered in China. The Broad Institute in Cambridge, Mass. owns the patent.

“We’re talking about “Big Business” involving the potential marketing and sale of genetically modified human and animal life forms. Imagine the potential strategic and military applications, not to mention the emergence of a corporate health service economy for the super-rich, where “perfect babies” can be purchased for a million dollars.”
What are the chances that this technology has been around a lot longer than we can know? The “rollout” of actual human production in China makes sense if anyone involved with The Broad Institute is looking for a little plausible deniability when the “shit hits the fan” — in China, of course.
As they say in science-world, “more research is needed.”
