Where Are the Tree Huggers on Human Genetics?

I have used the phrase genetic morality fifty times, but no commenter has ever mentioned it.
If it is that one of the man’s crimes has been to treat nature unnaturally, if it is that we are morally obliged to avoid crimes against nature, why does our morality today have not one single word to say about our totally ignoring actions which distort natural genetic processes?

Well, it is true that we have billions of dollars and tens of thousands of full time workers doing nothing but dictating morality on our guilt at ruining nature by bringing new species into new areas.

But any suggestion that the same morality should apply to the bringing of large human populations into new environments is due to the fact that we CAN do it and cannot be criticized.
