Embarking on a UK speaking tour here's a man not afraid to court controversy. He claims black people are less intelligent. But it was this repugnant view that caught my eye and I briefly wondered how the anti-abortion and anti-gay fundamentalists would square it.
Dr Watson is no stranger to controversy. He has been reported in the past saying that a woman should have the right to abort her unborn child if tests could determine it would be homosexual.
Of course they would reject the idea because they believe sexual orientation can be changed. Although if a gene exists who created it?
This sort of idea highlights what an ethical nightmare gene technology can present.
