    What's the issue? The gene pool will remain diverse as long as the donors of the third set of cells they use is not the same.

    Many great artists suffer from severe depression to the point of suicide and self mutilation. I didn't know the connection, as you present it, but it makes sense to me.

    Sorry but these 'scientists' and 'parents' have no idea what sorts of problems might arise in these children. It's not good to mess with Mother Nature. (especially for selfish reasons)

    Sometimes just because you *can* do something doesn't mean it was a good idea or that you should.

    Evidence look up Designer babies Pro's and cons or look up the human brain or genetics

    Still not seeing the problem as long as the clones are never allowed to develop consciousness.

    Maybe so but they have a right to do this and it is not your business to interfere.

    Exactly. All of the others are physical defects. Gingerness is a spiritual defect.

    Why grow a whole human body when you can just grow individual replacement organs?

    That's sad. I'm glad I'm old enough that I likely won't be around.
