    The genetics revolution may have many benefits, but there is a need to make sure that the risk of error is low especially when editing genes. There could be beneficial things that could come from gene editing, but I must ask is it really worth the risk of receiving the these benefits if there is a high chance that there may be possible miscalculations due to lack of knowledge? By pausing efforts to genetically modify humans it helps prevent unnecessary harm and keep people safe. It also keeps the genetics industry from trying to do something reckless by banning them from doing so until knowledge on the subject has been acquired and the necessary regulations are in place. The government should strictly regulate genetic modification in humans in order to keep people safe.
