  • 1.

Arguments against it include:  To some, playing with our genes is like trying to play God, and trying to manipulate nature  Gene therapy can also go wrong and produce terrible mutations  There is not sufficient background studies to prove that genetic therapy is permanent, nor 100% effective.  Gene therapy many not be the solution to reverting diseases, and maybe we are placing it on a pedestal, where it may not belong. - See more at: http://www.enotes.com/homework-help/list-arguments-against-gene-therapy- 393596#sthash.cVIbHLlX.dpuf
