Gene editing is a controversial technology and there are many ethical issues to worry about and the most fundamental ethical issue is the risk. Relevant data collected from some ethicists who are interested in the gene editing and tend to cautiously criticize Chinese scientist, He Jiankui’s first gene editing on a human germ cell for purpose of social responsibility. When it comes to the ethical issue of gene editing, biologists are the first to be consulted, as it involves obscure biological knowledge. This paper present relevant ethical problems and the attitudes of some ethicists towards gene editing. Taken together, this paper gives some analyses of some ethicists’ attitudes and it might be helpful to various ethical arguments to the gene editing. Though we all have our own moral intuitions, right and wrong, from the views of ethicists, it will give more exploration the ethical challenges of human society while the gene editing technology may have a profound impact on the future of human beings.
