Genetic Engineering

I appose the idea of Genetic Engineering. I am against genetic
engineering because the reason of "playing god"
.

“Playing God”
is breaking two of the Ten Commandments. #2 "Thow
shall n
ot put the lord your God in vain." God created this universe
with a male and a female. He told them to create another world by
giving birth to a baby; not by creating your self a new. Also #10
"Thow shall not covet" If one person goes through the process o
f
genetic engineering then soon millions of people may want what that
one person has done
to thems
elves.


Also there can be a problem with ‘genetic pollution’ and can be
a major threat. ‘Genetic pollution’ is the release of GMO’s into one’s
environment. On
ce released, never can be tamed.

Greenpeace
International

states that
GMO’s
-
genetically modified organisms; they
can be spread
through nature and interbreed with natural organisms,
thereby contaminating non 'GE' environments and future generations in
an
unforeseeable and uncontrollable way.”

Genetic Engineering’s process includes experime
nts on animals
or rats.

These
scientists

don’t understand that these animals are
living creatures and they have feelings that humans don’t see. They
could be in severe pa
in and the
scientists don’t

care.


Now genetic
engineers are starting to modify the genes

of humans,
instead of animals
using three approaches: 1) cloning, 2)
s
omatic cell
manipulation, and 3) human germline manipulation
.”

Consumers Association (
OCA)

Genetic Engineering does also have a benefit to humans,
including:

advancing healthcare research

and treatment for new
vaccines and medicines, satisfying

food production need
ed for the
growing population and in
creasing profits in
the pet retail indus
try
to
preserve endangered species.


I do appose of Genetic Engineering. It’s wrong, cruel, and can be
harmful to humans and animals.

I would vote a NO!!!
