The first ethical theory is Utilitarianism. Utilitarianism is based on actions that show right from wrong. In the story the Utilitarianism, is choosing which would benefit the most to the most people. This theory would conclude that it was the best choice to take Henrietta Lack’s cells and distribute them all over like they did in the story. The utilitarianism would benefit much more on the decision that the doctor made then a negative decision, which is based on consequences.
There are also many concerns drawn toward the uncertainty of gene therapy, especially when looking at previous deaths in result of gene therapy. Many think it is not morally acceptable to be testing on human beings when there is so much risk involved. It is also stressed that ‘gene therapy could possibly manipulate gens to genetically control traits in human offspring that are not health related (encyclopedia.com).’ To many, genetic modification or manipulation of genes is not morally or ethnically acceptable and therefore should not be done at all. Even though this procedure could save a life or help someone stretch their life span, people think it is unacceptable to play with the ‘body’ we were given. As gene therapy progresses we can see that it has many benefits and the future of gene therapy does look promising.
Once the fetus was checked illness or disable, it was then immediately killed. It violates the humanity and also can be seen as a discrimination of humankind. With the times pass by, there will be more and more intelligent people but the diversity of human will be deceased. Human diversity was created by the mutation of a gene, with this, everyone so to become unique and irreplaceable. Furthermore, human diversity plays a vital role in human for adapting and survival to an environment If eugenics is applied to the society, people will not be able to handle situation out of the blue.
Animal Testing Should Be Banned Animal testing also known animal experimentation is a process whereby non-human animals are used to conduct experiments. There has been an increase of animal testing in the field of biomedical research. Due to this, animal testing has become an extreme controversial topic that has created a division among different groups, of those who are supporting the process and those who are opposing. Therefore, there are ongoing debates on whether animal testing should go on or it should be banned. Some groups argue it is ethical, while others insist that the process is unethical, and there is a last group advocating for alternatives in the testing other than the use of animals.
Without animal testing, we will become the subject of experiments. People should be aware that without any alternative in place, it would be the same as saying that human rights are less important than animal rights. Human beings desperately need animal testing for the development of cures as well as for the sake of civilisation. If it wasn’t for animal testing, human beings would not be alive today. Animal testing has played a significant role in developing numerous medications that are absolutely necessary for us to live such as antibiotics, penicillin, and
Their right to privacy and dignity was debased by not having control of their medical care and knowing the real purpose of the experiment. The participants are forever known as the Tuskegee Experiment subjects. Their rights and their family rights to anonymity and confidentiality do not exist because of the façades of the experiment. The participants were lied to about the purpose of the study, a description of medical treatment, and the procedures of the study. They did not receive fair treatment.
This quotes defends my opinion as it is a solidifying fact that myths are functions that teach people how to live under the circumstances that they are in. If people can relate to the myths they can solve anything that is a mystery to them. Not everyone has to comply with religion as I do to find answers as I do but there are many different ways as myths come in different forms in our society. More importantly is what humans get out of these myths, the answer gives satisfaction to those who are lost. Those who choose to seek answers from myths get what they are looking for whether they are enjoying life or doing what they like.
Human can be needed to thrive but can sometimes only make certain situations worse or not much better than before. Like in my evidence “The ethical justification of biomedical research involving human subjects is the prospect of discovering new ways of benefiting people's health”. Which is basically stating that we perform human experimentation to benefit ourselves and others. Science-based medicine depends upon human experimentation. Scientists can do the most fantastic translational research in the world.
Medical research is the hardest case of proposition in the debate whether animal testing should be banned or not, since it has previously yielded substantial benefits for humanity. Throughout moral, humanistic, and social perspectives animal testing is beneficial for medical evolution. Animals ' rights are of less moral worth than human rights. Humans are complex beings with large well developed brains, which form sizeable social groups, have significant ability to communicate with one another, and possess desires, preferences and interests about the world. Humans have an awareness of their own existence and mortality, and as such are beings worthy of moral consideration.
“Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will”- Suzy Kassem. In Daniel Keyes novel, Flowers for Algernon, the protagonist Charlie Gordon chooses to undergo a controversial experiment in order to become smart. This is not something that would be accepted in the medical community today. Due to the implications behind the theory from doctors and professors saying that it will have a negative effect in individuals with the vast amount of intellect would be scared people that follow a religion in today's society, therefore the experiment Charlie went through goes against everything they believe in and what they are. The experiment that Charlie is going through does not go along with the legal system as the legal system is against this because they don't want people
