Designer Babies

Aab_2 Is a "designer baby" -- a child whose genes have been deliberately modified to meet parents' specifications -- a good or a service for purposes of Article 2?  That's an interesting question -- the child might be "specially manufactured goods" under 2-105(1) -- but we expect it won't be one of those addressed at Designer Babies, a symposium scheduled for March 30 at the University of Pittsburgh.  Panelists appear to be focusing on less compelling topics, like the medical, ethical, and moral issues involved in the business.  Still, it sounds interesting.
