By now, you've likely heard that egg-n-sperm bigwig Dr. Jeff Steinberg plans to deliver (ha) designer babies by the summer -- namely, kids with the skin, hair and eye color of your choice. Kind of like a Build-a-Bear Workshop for the future of humanity.
In response, Guanabee.com concocted this Dr. Jeff Steinberg Genetically Engineered Baby Color Poll to explore the question on everyone's minds: If you could choose these traits for your baby -- plus gender -- which way would you go?
Early results show a definite bias toward males (53 percent) over females; a tie between blue and brown eyes (22 percent each); and a preference for straight over curly hair (53 to 47 percent). Interestingly, at this writing, respondents picked an olive-skinned baby (39 percent) over white or brown skin (28 percent), whereas just 6 percent said they'd pick black as their baby's skin color of choice.
Which prompts a question: Can you order up a baby with black skin, blue eyes and red hair? Or is there a genetic "no substitutions" policy, like with the McDonald's Value Meals?
