NO!! Not not at all! I'm saying there should be an stopping point. I'm say that allot of our heath issues derive from our view on our body and what we intake into our system. Everyone deserves to live a health happy life. I just feel that when those methods go from helping use to killing us. Now, there are some instance where it just cant be help but, like I said allot of illness can he prevent is we would just take time time to do what we know is right. For instance..Lets say cloning animals and drugs abuse...I'm saying that cloning chicken is play God but I can settle with it if its used to help cure diseases not cause them and I do think that there is a problem when they used those defected chicken clones in our food. Esp. when those clones had all kinds of steroids and drugs used in the process, then its put out in the pubic. And as for drug, as a parent you cant do drugs and not expect any consequences. Now, its unfortunate that the baby will suffer for this and in cases like this there should be help for the infant. My problem comes in where they use those methods and incorporate it into the human society.

It's funny, reading so much about these debates on ethics when the primary driving force behind all these genetic engineering of food and etc etc comes from economic reasons.
