Before you get upset let me just say "I get it". Now we've got a cloned dog...Snuppy. First of all, that's a terrible name. How about Cluppy (cloned puppy) if you're going to give him a name that other dogs are going to tease him for having. Anyway.
There are millions of dogs that need good homes but why adopt when you can have a brand new Fido? There are millions of kids that need good homes but why adopt when you can fill out a scan tron form and get a custom kid?
I know a case can be made, and frequently a great case, for all of these new sciences but when is enough enough? There's a natural life cycle for all living things so why do we have to tamper with it? Don't get me wrong, I tamper daily when I take my aspirin to stave off those heart attacks or when I go get a vaccine to stave off that pesky polio but those aren't altering my DNA. Not only are those not altering my DNA but it doen't cost any lives for that vaccination. Stop tampering!
