started this petition to
President Obama
A study is now being conducted in China looking for specific genetic markers influencing IQ in humans. If this study is completed then it may be only 5-10 years before babies begin to be genetically selected on the basis of IQ. In other words, in addition to genetically modified crops we will be facing genetically modified humans.





The risks of this research outweigh any potential benefits and it should be shut down immediately. Tell President Barack Obama to ask the Chinese to stop.
