David Pearce on natural conception

Critics of transhumanism decry the risks of reckless genetic experimentation: a brave new world of designer babies”. Yet with the exception of child-free anti-natalists, we’re all implicated in the creation of suffering to gratify our craving to reproduce and pass on our genes. All children born today are untested genetic experiments—endogenous opioid addicts born with a lethal genetic disease (aging), and prone to a lifetime of physical and psychological distress.
