Sandel state that certain prenatal tests can “detect genetic abnormalities” and have the ability to determine the sex of the fetus. These tests allow for a parent to choose the sex of their child by taking a couple of fertilized eggs and look at the sex and check for the possibility of defective flaws. The parents choose the perfect egg and get rid of the imperfect ones (Sandel). Just like the paraphrase above, this shows if it takes a significant amount of embryos and fetus’ to find one perfect child, then the situation goes from parents looking for a child to a situation of murder to many unborn children. That is extremely inhumane, especially if it is a parent just looking for one specific
Several European countries, including France, Germany and Switzerland, have banned the creation of cloned human embryos for reproductive or therapeutic purposes. England, Singapore, Sweden, China and Israel allow cloning for research, but prohibit it for reproduction”. Each Country has specific and similar reasons as why cloning is prohibited. The main concern is moral rights and the unanswered question: are they human? When trying to figure out if clones have to obey the same laws as non-clones, the discussion becomes difficult.
“Ethics is the study of how the society can think, understand, and examine its norms and practices with regard to living a moral life” (nathaniel, 2008). Abortion is a term that deliver prematurely, end of pregnancy were the result shows no childbirth due to many reasons, divided into the medical need or to the mother self perception, so is abortion an ethical issue? It is considered an ethical dilemma? There are many opinion about how and when abortion can conduct. A wide-ranging agreement present, however, abortion is acceptable in the limit of medical issues as a result of miscarriage, birth defects or when it’s danger on the mother health.
The development of technology and innovation is facilitating the discovery of more efficient and reliable birth control techniques that serve to protect the user from sexual infections. This is unlike the traditional methods that only prevented pregnancy to some extent (Policy 12-34). The importance of birth control cannot be ignored in the current society. Its effects are felt and seen at the individual level, family level, and country level and even in the entire world. This is because uncontrolled population causes conflicts on the limited resources as people struggle to survive in situations of uncontrolled birth.
The prenatal diagnostics and prenatal screening being routine procedures should be considered as advantage of modern medicine. It helps to reveal wide spectrum of fetus abnormal conditions, but not only congenital defects and malformations. Early detection of many of them could help to perform surgical correction and necessary management as soon as possible in order to save newborns’ lives. On the other hand, this method is widely discussed and it has many opponents, and in some countries prenatal diagnostic procedures is not considered now as a screening method. Main ethical issues are terminations of pregnancies in case of malformations, which may be supposed as eugenical abortion, inform consent and problem of decision-making process.
Her argument is that we are using abnormal things to get rid of abnormal things; however, she didn’t explained how these abnormalities are different from many other abnormalities that are of great use to human health today. Another point she made was that some women suffer producing these eggs for research even though these women have given their consent. In order to justify this position, she said that because the only way we can see the result of these experiments is to wait and see how the embryo develops, this is an absolute ethical no(Tsiyonut times, 2012). Some of the point can be formulated this way: How are we going to remove the potential side effects of these techniques by doing more research if the potential and existing side effects of these research are the primary point of objection? Give two pros and two cons outlined in these videos.
Voluntary organ donation should be restricted as much as possible within one’s own country so as to prevent supply imbalances 16.

As scientific technology continues to grow, however, an answer to this dilemma has come to the forefront. With in vitro fertilization, many otherwise infertile couples can now become parents. In order to achieve this, doctors go through a process which involves taking eggs from the woman and mixing them with sperm from the man. This creates a number of human embryos for the doctor
IVF-ET – (In vitro Fertilization Embryo Transfer). Explain its use and how it works. In vitro fertilization embryo transfer is used to help couples that are having problems to have babies naturally, sometimes the problem could come from either the man or woman or both. This procedure is also used as it is the often considered the simplest, the embryo transfer is used to facilitate conception. In vitro fertilization embryo transfer works by transferring the embryos to the woman’s uterus after they are at a 2-8 cell stage.
It refers to the child will much pretty look like one parent and it will have many of the same behavior predispositions as the one parent. No doubt, nobody will be able to distinguish the cloned child as they have the same biological tie with their parents. Other than that, human cloning cures couple in which one party has serious hereditary diseases. It may be unacceptable to some couples, because a third part’s genes are introduced in the reproduction and there is a risk of transmitting the detrimental condition. For example, a couple who are carriers of genetic disease usually have a one in the four risk of transmitting the disease to the offspring.
Embryonic stem cells are the cells which potentially provide life to a blastocyst and lead to the creation of a fetus, or baby. Recently there have been many experiments conducted to extract embryonic stem cells from the blastocyst. With this new research, has also come a huge controversy. Although embryonic stem cell research is practiced with good intents and is designed to find cures for people already suffering or living a limited lifestyle due to health disabilities, what is not always mentioned is that another human’s life is being destroyed in the process. These innocent babies, whether it be considered legal or not, are being plucked from their mother’s womb to be used for nothing more than a science experiment.
The immortal life of Henrietta Lacks has raised ethical issues in the exploration of the origin of HeLa and also the struggles that her siblings faced. These cells are the basis for the discoveries of important scientific studies. If she had been in charge of the tissues that had been removed from her and had been declined them to be used in studies, none of these studies would have been possible. The novel raises many ethical issues and on how science is handled today. We should be able to control what happens to our tissues, the consequences, and benefits of donating tissues to science, should be something we have in thought in the day of age in healthcare and science.
