Discovery of CRISPR/Cas9 technology produced a revolution in human medicine, because of the availability, efficiency and low cost, which has raised a number of questions. Given that by applying CRISPR/Cas9 technology we can program our future children and extend their life expectancy, question is whether we should allow it. The point of the paper is to determine the limits of legal admissibility and ethical justification of this procedure, considering contemporary legal theoretical views, ethical values and social significance. Using normative, comparative and sociological method the authors analyze the impact of biotechnology development, in the context of genetic interventions, on redefining the regulatory framework. Critical consideration in the context of legal standardization of human genetic interventions and meeting the interests of all participants, has been identified as a core subject of research, which will be considered in accordance with a holistic approach to the realization of human rights.
