Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

1- Genetically modifying a human embryo is wrong- It all started with a rumor. Then just six weeks ago, a warning rang out in the scientific journal nature, expressing “grave concerns regarding the ethical and safety implications” of creating the world’s first genetically-modified human embryo.

2- Marriage is not just any relationship between human beings. It is a relationship rooted in human nature and thus governed by natural law.

Natural law’s most elementary precept is that “good is to be done and pursued, and evil is to be avoided.” By his natural reason, man can perceive what is morally good or bad for him. Thus, he can know the end or purpose of each of his acts and how it is morally wrong to transform the means that help him accomplish an act into the act’s purpose.

3- Given this temperament, it’s easy for me to convince myself that I’m just a really saintly, other-cheek-turning kind of person on occasions when I let others’ transgressions go. “Just trying to imitate the Lord!” I assure myself…but in reality I’m just doing what’s easiest for me. For example, the other day I’d been waiting in a line for quite a while, and a woman cut right in front of me. It was pretty clear from her body language that this was intentional. It was one of the most blatantly unfair, infuriating actions I’ve witnessed in a long time. My temper flared,

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
