Yeah, but then you'd end up with a population that had no flaws. Everybody will win the nobel prize and will never die because they're engineered to survive everything. That's not a sustainable world.

This is such a huge argument that I don't think there is a single right or wrong answer. It is completely the parents' choice. Personally, I think it is acceptable, but only if as a parent you are at a particularly high risk of giving your child a disease that will affect their quality of life. I agree that it should only be used to 'wipe out genetic diseaases', as cakefish said, and the misuse will result in something similar to Hitler's Aryan race, which would be a very selfish thing to produce.
