when condoms were made from such materials as fish bladders, linen sheaths, and animal intestines. Around 1500 the first spermicides were introduced.

The first successful application of IVF in humans took place almost a century later on July 25, 1978, when Louise Brown was born and entitled the world 's first “test-tube baby” (Lerner). This procedure’s purpose is to switch out genes for more preferred ones, especially to improve the health of the child. Genetic engineering could permit selection of desired physical and pleasurable traits for non-medical reasons, which has created concern in some people. The process of switching out the genes of a fetus to install genes that are more preferred has brought up debate about whether or not parents should be able to alter their babies genes to make them more appealing to the parents interests. There are many different ways of looking at this procedure and in contrast to other scientific procedures it can be for greater good or for unnecessary enhancement that could potentially create problems in society.
Malone attempts a persuasive style of writing but its effectiveness is questionable. He succeeds in creating an argument, but his call-to-action is ineffective. Considering the context, style, and other components, the target audience could not be properly persuaded. Kobutsu Malone’s “Narcissism and Spiritual Materialism: The New Age Legacy” does a dissatisfactory job of persuading its audience, New Age participants, due to his hypocritical ethos, aggressive pathos, and misguided logos. Malone’s main argument, materialistic values are vividly apparent in the New Age, failed to convince readers his opinion should be taken seriously.

Destructive Nature of Racialised Beauty Toni Morrison published her first book, The Bluest Eye, in 1970.

He then concluded that the patient was in love with a girl whose home Avicenna was able to pinpoint based on the examination of his pulse. This demonstrates how physicians in the early Islamic period diagnosed certain medical illnesses by using palpitations and the arterial pulse to indicate abnormal heart rate, allowing certain sickness to be treated before reaching late stages. Similarly, regarding the impact of the arterial pulse, the discovery of heart palpitations also affected modern times as it furthered humans’ knowledge on cardiology, which led the way to several new breakthroughs such as physicians to using pulse and palpitation as a diagnosis as well as prognosis. In conclusion, Avicenna’s book The Canon of Medicine was a significant piece of medical work as it educated people through its medical doctrines. The breakthroughs included within the piece impacted not only the understanding of medicine in the pre Islamic civilization but also today.

Cultural relativism has a variety of definitions, but the main idea is that a universal code of ethics does not exist--it varies culture to culture. Rachel’s examines cultural relativism in “The Challenge of Cultural Relativism” and argues that there are commonalities of ethics throughout every culture. Rachels sections off his argument to better explain what they believe. In this piece, they argue that cultural relativism is not a proper theory. They argue that it has many major flaws, but they acknowledge that parts of theory have some truth to it.
The nineteenth century is a new age, and it is one of surgery. In a Baltimore clinic in 1890, Atossa would be given a radical mastectomy which removes the tumor along with deep chest muscles. She is treated with X-rays in the early twentieth century and then in the 1950s, her cancer is treated with both a mastectomy and radiation. The 1970s follow her surgery up with chemotherapy to reduce the chance of relapse and when her tumor tests positive for the estrogen receptor, Tamoxifen is also added to her treatment. It is hard to say for sure but it is estimated that seventeen to thirty years could have been added to her life.
