Because of the inventions of so many new technologies, the experiment that was being done on plants is now being experimented on humans. Today a lot of people are choosing to do human genetic modification. Human genetic modification was designed to cure diseases, but people are now using it to change physical characteristics of their babies. They are changing the genes of their babies because they want their babies to be perfect the way they want the baby to look like. People need to stop doing human genetic modification because god made us the way we are and you should not change that, the outcome of gene modification is not always accurate, and human genetic modification is a threat to humans.

It was created in 1996. It died in 2003 because of many circumstances.” (“debatewise.org”).

So, it means that if you want to create "healthy" Dolly, you need to test a million of "unhealthy" Dollies. And there is the chance that you will make some unit in 2050 maybe. That is not good because you cannot sacrifice a million for just one.”
