This paper will attempt to argue for the moral permissibility of genetic enhancement through the ethical lens of principlism, which necessitates the consolidation of positive and negative eugenics as therefore equally permissible. I will argue that through modern medicine and technology we have a moral obligation to establish a more fair baseline of human functioning, and that giving consent to such enhancement is morally justifiable.
