DNA manipulation to have a child that “looks” a particular way

Your original post MUST be a minimum 150 words. For your discussion post this week, answer the following : The structure of DNA was “figured out” over three-quarters of a century ago, and since then, manipulation of it and use of that knowledge have gone in so many different directions. What do you think about things like DNA testing before birth for possible disease or conditions, DNA manipulation to have a child that “looks” a particular way, Genetic testing being used to find family lineage/history, Genetic testing being used by insurance companies, or employers to determine eligibility for insurance or hiring, etc.? Are there other ways it is being used that are not mentioned here that you can think of?
