Letter: Moral issues raised by 'designer babies'

Sir: As the black mother (my father was from Jamaica) of two white, grey-eyed blonde children, I wholeheartedly endorse Kenan Malik's arguments in his article 'Children of a confused society' (3 January). Nature has none of the objections to mixed race families which so trouble people like Dame Jill Knight.

Politicians and those critical of the black Italian mother who has elected to have a white baby have managed to create a new area of prejudice. This proclaims that the naturally fertile may have a different race child, but if you need artificial intervention, you must stick to some theoretical colour code.

Yours faithfully,

SUSAN FORFAR
