Should genetic engineering or human cloning be used to create designer babies?

Every parent wants a perfect child - but what happens when a parent wants a designer child - a child built to order, a pedigree child, a super-breed, super-human or just a baby with higher intelligence?  Sex selection is just the start of the process, a form of designer life: parents deciding that only a certain type of perfectly normal child will be allowed to be born.

Latest research is turning all these dreams into reality, using technology developed originally for use in animals.

Supermodels sell human eggs on-line to infertile couples

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - What is Human Cloning? How to Clone. But Ethical?

Selling human eggs on-line is the latest fashion.  Infertile couples are buying human eggs on-line.  Supermodels could have whole new career selling their eggs.  After all, sperm banks have been around for years - so why not donate eggs which might give a child a genetic advantage?  Why I am against human cloning.
