Joe Biden’s call to ‘write circuitry for cells and predictably program biology in the same way … we program computers,’ if applied to humans, could not only cause physical harm, but would open up floodgates to eugenics.
(LifeSiteNews) — The Biden administration issued an executive order calling for biotechnology that can “predictably program biology in the same way in which we write software and program computers,” a transhumanist practice, in service of human “health.”
As an example of such biotechnology, Executive Order 14081 included by implication the COVID-19 mRNA injections, citing the COVID-19 “pandemic” as demonstrating “the vital role of biotechnology … in developing and producing life-saving … vaccines that protect Americans and the world.”
The mRNA jabs are an example of what has been described as “the most prominent area of biotechnology”: The “production” of ostensibly “therapeutic proteins and other drugs through genetic engineering.” However, while the proteins produced by the mRNA shot were touted as beneficial, evidence has emerged that they are toxic to humans. In fact, as StatNews noted in 2016, mRNA experiments were abandoned by several pharma groups before the COVID-19 outbreak over “concerns about toxicity.”
In support of its proposal to use biotechnology to “aid” human health, the order called upon the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to “submit a report assessing how to use biotechnology … to achieve medical breakthroughs, reduce the overall burden of disease, and improve health outcomes.”
Efforts to “program biology” in human beings not only present further potential dangers to health, such as those shown by the mRNA shots, but they would also increasingly open up the possibilities of eugenic “enhancement,” which is why gene editing has often been described as a “Pandora’s Box,” potentially “creating classes of genetic haves and have-nots in society.”
In fact, the use of such technology has been underway for years. For example, the gene editing tool CRISPR has been used in China to alter the DNA of babies to apparently eliminate susceptibility to HIV.
According to Biden’s executive order, while “the power of” biotechnology “is most vivid at the moment in the context of human health,” it “can also be used to achieve our climate and energy goals, improve food security and sustainability, secure our supply chains, and grow the economy.”
