What Price the Perfect Baby?

Science 173:103, 1971 (Letter).


In defending himself against the charges made by Rudolf Steinberger (Letters, 9 April), Bentley Glass states that he was merely predicting and not advocating that future state of affairs in which babies would be conceived in laboratories and parceled out, as young embryos, to foster parents. Glass’s article (8 Jan., p. 23) offered no such disclaimer, nor did it provide any hint that Glass considers such a future state undesirable.
