I am doing a presentation on Designer Babies for school. I have to discuss how Designer Babies will impact society in a bad way. This includes the short and long term effects. I have many long term effects such as:
1. stereotypes
2. “Super Humans”
3. Discrimination against people with disabilities
4. Very expensive and only rich will be able to afford

But I can’t seem to find very many short term effects. Do you have any websites that would be helpful for me? I am taking a stand and I am against Designer Babies. I just need more scientific evidence to back me up on why it is bad.

Some have been produced for stem-cell research which is another part of all this that you might include. Is that ethical or not, in your opinion?
