    clamp down hard

    Can you please explain to me ' clamp down hard' in the following sentence? If possible, can you please explain the underlined parts together? Thanks a lot!

    As a new age of genetics looms, how free should we be to design our children? Should we elimate defects and tweak embryos to enhance intelligence? Or should society do what it failed to do with cosmetic surgery- clamp down hard from the start?
