Is it possible in India to remove genes for diseases like cancer, myopia, and hashimoto's through genetic testing of embryos before implanting in the womb?

Please read the article which was published regarding the BRCA gene editing from embryos. They didnt do gene editing. It was embryo selection. So those embryos which did not have the gene were implanted. Gene editing if technically feasible, but a lot of problems with it at present. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.
