Designer children and playing God...

Been doing some reading and I wonder what this article bodes for the future. "Deafness" as a culture? An interesting thought... but of greater concern to me is this whole issue of "designer" babies. Will the future really be like the movie Gattaca, where I may a doctor X amount of $$$ to churn out a baby that has all of my strengths, as well other "non-essential" designer characteristics like the big 'ol ear lobes and the ability to raise one eyebrow?

It's a strange world we live in.
