I think that there are going to be a lot of new changes in the upcoming millennium. I think the change that will have the
biggest impact will be genetic engineering. One side of
genetic engineering will be that parents will be allowed to
chose the outcome of their baby. Another side is cloning. I think the biggest part will be correcting DNA to get rid of
diseases. That could also be a part of choosing your baby
because you could fix any problems before it is even born.
I think the part that will most affect our generation will
be choosing your baby. You will probably be able to choose
the sex, hair color, skin tone, etc. You might even be able to choose your babies birthdate. You will probably also be
able to choose which parent the child resembles more. I
think that cloning could also be a part of this because they will be able to make your baby look exactly like whoever you want.
I think that cloning will be the change that everyone
likes for a little while but then they will realize that it is really bad and we are running out of room to live. I think it will start out that they get a clone to help with housework
but then they will just keep getting more and more until the clones have clones who have clones and no one will have
any idea who they are talking to. Then after all of that
happens people will be living forty or fifty to a house and the we will have to cut down all of the trees to have room to live and then we will die because we need trees to make oxygen
for us. I am strongly against cloning because I believe that if you clone people the will just get lazy and fat because
they will have clones running around to do everything for
them. Another thing I do not agree with is fixing people's
problems with gene therapy.
I think that if people get a disease it is either their own fault or they got it for some reason. I do not think that we should be able to decide who lives and who dies. It is okay to try and...
