Summary Filmed in clinics and research centres where genetic manipulation of human embryos has already begun, Making Perfect Babies offers a critical examination of the new genetic technology and its potential applications. Through interviews with people like scientist and feminist, Ruth Hubbard, and disability activist Marsha Saxton, the film raises important questions about why the technology is being developed and how it may affect the lives of women and society as a whole. It warns that we may be heading toward a future in which quality control is an acceptable part of human procreation.
