I don't want kids. But probably yeah. I'd make sure they were healthy and pretty etc. I think the main problem with doing that is that if it were possible it wouldn't be available to everyone, it would widen the divide between the rich and poor even more. I would want it to be available for everyone.1

To some extend, yes.
I have a very strong visual disability. I am almost completely blind. While I have learned to live with it (I have it since birth), it obviously makes my life a lot harder in many respects. There are numerous things I can't do that I would love to do. I'm not allowed to drive a car or a motorbike, I can't play any team sports such as soccer or basketball. In fact, I'm not even allowed to run for medical reasons. The only sport I can do without worries is swimming. I have it much harder to study and it will be harder for me than for others to get into the job that I really want to get. And then of course I have all the doctor visits, the surgeries since I was a child etc.. I don't mean to be whiny about it but it can be quite tough. Because I know all this, and because I know that my children will have a 50%-risk of inheriting this handicap, I would love to do something about it if I could. I really don't want them to be forced to go through the same hardships as I did. And frankly, I also don't know if I could handle having one or even two handicapped children. I'm already handicapped myself and that's quite enough. I would also be very worried about my girlfriend (who has good eyes) having to take care of everyone. I really don't want that. So if I could do this, I definitely would. As for looks... I don't think I would want to change them. My kids are gonna be bi-racial white-asian and I'm sure they're gonna turn out very beautiful (as almost all bi-racial children do :-)).1
