As I see of the purpose of eugenics to improve the qualities that we have biologically, I see no harm on it. If it could improve and decrease the chances of the effect of the different diseases that eventually harm us as a whole, I will agree for that purpose. But if it would mean to create another "superior race" that would possibly happen, I will strongly oppose the idea. There were actually some dilemmas behind the concept of eugenics. Others view it as related to the historical event when Hitler started a holocaust and had thought of an ideal race dominating this world.

For eugenics, some scientists would indulge in to exhaust all their efforts to maximize the potentials in improving lives. That however should be still bounded by ethical responsibilities and legal matters. We experiment on our ownselves and it deserves careful and proper treatment, not supposed to be just exploited in some ways.
