World's first genetically modified humans born

After the news was released a new debate broke out about the ethics of some modern medical research.

Some wonder if the future may see "assembly line humans" modified to fulfill certain roles deemed necessary by the State such as soldiers, factory workers, teachers, truck drivers, janitors, and so on.
