    Then try posing your own ideas first! I don't mind adding to stuff you've posted, but I'm not doing the work for you!

    1) Reduction in the gene pool leading to vulnerability to new diseases
    2) In human cloning, it is very dangerous and expensive
    3) It is consdiered by some to be "playing God" - although thats more an ethical issue

    • unethical - playing god
    • in the long term it sort of prevents evolution
    • very difficult to do accurately and without any problems- animals have had problems growing, damaged immune systems, premature aging etc. there's just not enough know
    • danger of designer babies, humans bred to be good at something
    • potentially dangerous if gets into the wrong hands
