:We have the ability to forsee and understand at least some of the consequences of our actions. I agree in concept with a statement you made in another post that this (and I add "combined with the fact that we have desires, and experience pleasure and suffering, and are capable of empathy") gives us an inherent "responsibility" to behave in a way which is consistent with our sense of morality.

Well put. IMHO, two of the consequences of hybridizing are a reduction in diversity among the species over time and increase of falsehood in advertizing. These results are not consistent with my sense of morality.
