It's technology that's been outlawed on Earth and the Federation since 1996. Next film should have McCoy doin' time, like Mommy and Daddy Bashir.
Giving blood was outlawed! Holy Prime Directive!
I don't think that genetic engineering was outlawed in toto. Obviously, Beverly Crusher's transporter solution to Picard's adolescence essentially undid the changes to their (fictional) genetic structure. The EMH references corrections to genetic abnormalities in B'Elanna's family. I would not be surprised if there were a whole branch of medical ethics that dealt with how and when genetic engineering should be applied.
