Genetic imperfections, James Watson
Interviewee: James Watson. James Watson talks about Genetic imperfections.
And Hitler thought, well we'll kill these people, and that's what effectively, he didn't want to see imperfect people. Now we like to get the knowledge to in some way, understand why they're imperfect and hopefully cure some, or get the knowledge by which women might have the choice as to whether they will have an imperfect child. I mean the imperfection is not any grand design, it's just a mistake. And it's a sort of genetic injustice, it's very unfair, why some people should have a healthy child and other people not. And so today we want more children to be born with a real chance, but we don't want to act in a Hitler-like fashion.
