I am about to watch a film called “Errors of the human body” that I just ran into at the local Scope charity shop. Although I don’t know yet how much relevance it has within the context of the new eugenics, it reminds me of (the graphics for) a session on 17 October I saw announced on Twitter this afternoon:
Friends in TO come join me Thursday, October 17, 6:00-8:00 pm The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences
“Altered Inheritance: extinction, recreation or transformation?
a dialogue and discussion on the implications of genome editing on humans and other organisms” pic.twitter.com/8VStrWi9yT

If you happen to be in Chicago on the 14th, there is also this:
“We have a moral obligation as a society to respond to needs. But I don’t have the same moral obligation to respond to your wants.” See geneticist @FrancoiseBaylis at @ChicagoIdeas on Oct 14 https://t.co/gJfZhYzxkT
