The second law of thermodynamics holds right?
We have never observed any instance where it does not.
But the question is - What do you think the 2nd LoT actually states?

In this context, the information contained wihin the human genome. Whether it is decaying (homogenization) or introducing new information.
OK. By your definition of the 2nd LoT does a baby developing in the womb (single cell - multi cell zygote - embryo - foetus - baby) increasing in complexity as it grows violate the 2nd law of thermodynamics?
Or not?
If not why not?

Nothing defies the 2nd LOT .A program (information) uses it. There is information (organization) in the genetic program.
I am going along with your argument here - You seem to be saying that information can result in a decrease in entropy?
How does this work in terms of energy?
