This is a reminder that the ones already trying to ban human CRISPR want not just to limit the progress towards human enhancement but also, implicitly, that human beings would suffer and die of otherwise treatable hereditary and inborn conditions. Of course, even if the ban does come into effect, it won't stop neither research nor application. All they can accomplish, long-term, is the extra hassle of creating appropriate outsourcing solutions, and a clear, evidence-based demonstration of their respective stances.

I had a dream of having ahead a 10+ hour writing session and being all out of coffee, and not being able to replenish it. I had a nightmare.
