Eugenics is Greek for "well-born." Eugenics improves generations by allowing people to be the best they can be. Eugenics is a movement that is aimed at improving the genetic composition of the human race. Eugenics will allow people the opportunity to live longer happier lives. By "removing" unwanted genes, parents will be able to have the best child they can have. Eugenics has been used since the 1800's used for removing any and all unwanted genes from humans.

By Practicing eugenics, humans will have a decrease in genetic diseases. Science will be able to remove any genetic diseases from DNA. This means medical histories will no long be necessary. Furthermore, people who have diseases that run in the family blood-line wont have to worry about the increased chance for those diseases because they will already been removed.

Eugenics is all about improving humans. It makes people smarter, stronger and happier. It is almost like spring cleaning: remove everything that is not wanted and replace them for what is.

Re: Eugenics is all about improving humans. It makes people smarter, stronger and happier. It is almost like spring cleaning: remove everything that is not wanted and replace them for what is. Replacing a gene coding for shortness and replacing it with tall, changing eye-color, etc. This way a child is not limited by his/her parents while still being their child. It is still their child, but the best it can be.
