About gene therapy


  • They only allow it on rare diseases

  • not allowed in the u.s

  • need genetic counselling before and after
  • it cost a million dollars to get done

I feel like the price on it could be lower because its helping humans survive.Its helping us survive because if we are able to get rid of diseases that kill us we should instead of it just being past on through generations to will it will always kill.I say this because we should also allow it in the U.S because it will help cure diseases and eliminate them all together so they aren't past on.That is why t should be lower because if you can get rid of a disease you should do it so it doesn't come back to hurt anybody else.
