Well, David Marcus clearly says "You can't".

I always took "You can't" as "You can't stop it".

It being Genesis. I've never read that line as you couldn't beam over.

I suppose you could take the line reading that way but I always assumed he was talking about turning it off. When David says "You can't" he means:

"We forgot to put an off switch on it"

which brings more questions, why there was no abortion sequence. Did the research team really think everything would go right even if there was no Khan?
