Lab tests show risks of using CRISPR gene editing on embryos

A lab test aimed at fixing defective DNA in human embryos has highlighted the risks with this type of gene editing and the reason why leading scientists across the world say it’s too unsafe to try. Columbia University researchers used the chemical tool ’CRISPR-cas9’ to cut DNA in a precise spot, but using it on embryos, sperm or eggs makes changes that can pass to future generations.

Why would they be surprised that it is passed to children? That is what biology DOES.
