Genetic selection is new, unsupervised, and dangerous for the potential children who were their parent’s top choice in a laboratory. The physical effects on selected children are unknown, and can’t be researched without major ethical dilemmas such as human testing and the disposal of fertilized eggs. In my final analysis, I am strictly against the use of genetic selection for “perfect” embryos. When children are carried, parents are expected to have a multitude of questions. Boy or girl?
Depression after abortion is caused by women who don’t let themselves grieve after the procedure (https://www.newkidscenter.com/). Abortion ProCon wrote about a 2005 study published in BMC Medicine in which it stated that “...women who underwent an abortion had significantly higher anxiety scores on the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale up to five years after the pregnancy termination” (http://abortion.procon.org/). Five years is a long time for someone to feel this way, so women shouldn’t put themselves through that pain. Instead of allowing themselves to suffer, they should just decide not to go through with the abortion. Women’s maternal instincts are to care for a child, but many don’t realize the gravity of what they have done until after the child has been deprived of its existence.
These people would also say it is difficult to replace animals because other options are more difficult to test on. According to Ferdowsian, replacing animals in research would be difficult because the biology and genetic make up of animals is too similar to humans to be easy to replicate. Therefore, removing all animal testing would be a difficult task because testing the products on an actual organism allow researchers to mirror the outcomes of the products on humans. However, Ferdowsian continues by stating, “While it is important to acknowledge limitations to non-animal methods remain, recent developments demonstrate that these limitations should be viewed as rousing challenges rather than insurmountable obstacles.” (par. 21) She is essentially saying that while it will be difficult to remove animal testing, science should not give up on this goal just because it will prove
Opponents of animal experimentation point out that useful alternatives exist. Numerous viable alternatives exist; therefore, people should examine and improve it to replace animals (Miller 1). Scientists and physicians did not consider about this problem seriously because thinking about alternatives is more difficult than using animal routinely (Garner 71). Therefore, people should seek the alternatives for not using animal. On the other hand, proponents of animal experimentation claim that there are no useful alternatives.
Another inconvenience is absence of quality variety. Characteristic generation guarantees a blend of diverse qualities bringing about remarkable people. Alan Boyle stated that, although, the cloned offspring shares the genetic blueprint of the original, contained within nuclear DNA, researchers say different variables would make the clone not quite the same as its parents. This statement proved that cloning has lack of gene variation. Although cloning it has non beneficial it should not be banned.
However, that line of thinking quickly clashes with the fact that with the help of exactly such testing, with the sacrifice of those animal lives, human lives are saved in return. Who are we to object to the expedition of finding a cure for someone’s son’s or daughter’s illness on the basis that it would be cruel toward some animals, which fact is not up for debate, it is indeed downright monstrous. And if one person had the conviction to deny themselves the cure, what gives them the right to forbid others from using it. In the end the simplest question presents itself, whether testing experimental drugs and treatments on humans is more sane and logical rather than animal testing, and then there is a line which might as well cease progress. A line which demands not to be crossed, the line that demands human lives be handled with caution and care, the line which will cause baby steps instead of strives
The choice of using Charlie Gordon in Daniel Keyes’ book, Flowers for Algernon, for an intelligence altering surgery was unethical and biased. The first reason that Charlie should not have been chosen for the surgery is that it left him and his life in worse condition than when before the surgery. “ I dont want Miss Kinnian to feel sorry for me. Evry body feels sorry at the factery and I dont want that eather so Im going some place where nobody knows that Charlie Gordon was once a genus and now he cant reed a book or rite good” (Keyes 210). This quote illustrates that Charlie has
Supporters of late-term abortion believe the mother should undoubtfully have more rights than the baby. However, once the baby is out of the woman's body, the argument becomes invalid. The argument becomes invalid because the baby isn't supported by its mother. The baby can technically live without the mother's body (Alters 147). The D&X procedure involves delivering the baby until just the head remains in the cervix.
Women should give their unwanted babies to couples who can not conceive instead of aborting them. As reported by the US Department of Health and Human Services 2.6 million women in America were trying to adopt children in 2002. As a result of the lack of women putting their children up for adoption, the number of US infant adoptions dropped from about 90,000 in 1971 to 18,000 in 2007. Abortion became legal in the United States in 1973 requiring all 50 states to possess a minimum of one abortion clinic. However, each state can limit the use of abortion or create trigger laws .In approximately three-fourths of America, abortion is legal .A pro-choice advocate believes that abortion should be legalized and they support a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her body.
Several scientists only think how to making their test successfully without knowing that animal they use are being abused and maltreated. Not all tests are relevant to human health. Certain scientific tests can cause human diseases instead of having a good effect. Testing on animals for medical research is not helpful because it can give us wrong answers. Many tests done on animals can provide misleading results.
