But, if no spare embryo is created and the original embryo is tested and not implanted because it is damaged by the procedure, it is also a waste of human potential. Even more people don’t support cloning because of the rights that all humans, both born and yet to be born, have. One of these is a right to have parents, or to have genes from two individuals. However, this argument is based off of the misconception that many people have, which is that a clone is the child of a nucleus donor. In fact, they are the donor’s twin sibling and have the same genetic parents as the donor.
Lastly, is the concept of homosexuality and its connection with nature and nurture. On the side of nature, the article Homosexuality: Nature Or Nurture, talks about how scientists have discovered that in homosexuals their hypothalamus was structured differently, the hypothalamus is the center for sex drives and sexual hormones. They also found that their suprachiasmatic nucleus was 2x bigger, that is responsible in controlling circadian rhythm. As stated from article Homosexuality: Nature Or Nurture, “Sexual desire alone is not strong enough to create homosexuality but that the cultural environment allows or forbids the relationship”. This clarifies that not only does homosexuality depend on a biological basis but also an environment basis.
The nature vs. nurture debate centers on whether human behaviour and personality are inherited (nature) or acquired (nurture); in other words, whether a person’s environment or a person’s genetic inheritance determines their behaviour and personality. Goldsmith and Harman (1994) adopt a neutral position, in which both nature and nurture influence people, stating that they “believe that the fundamental issue concerns the interplay between characteristics of the individual and of the relationship” (54). Goldsmith and Harman discuss temperament and attachment for infant, with temperament being linked to the nature side of the debate and attachment being linked with the nurture side; as a result, the infant’s temperament influences the attachment bond between the infant and the mother, but the attachment bond influences the temperament of the child as well. Therefore, both nature and nurture interact with each other to produce people’s behaviour (Harman et al. 54). Andersen and Berk (1998) take on the nurture perspective, while Leary (1999) claims that nature is the determining factor of a person’s personality.
Cloning is a type of nonsexual proliferation. A tyke delivered by cloning is believed to be the hereditary copy of a current individual. On the off chance that you cloned yourself, the subsequent child would be neither your daughter nor son and might by a twin sibling or sister, however another class of human being: your clone (McLean, 2013). The considerable lion 's share of people has a natural sense that human beings ought not to be cloned.
Freud originally proposed the first theory of homosexuality, claiming that children who have an absent parent of their same sex and strong attachment to their opposite-sex parents become homosexuals because of a deviation in their psychosexual development. His psychodynamic theory of homosexuality claims that, for a male child, “identification with the mother is an outcome of this attachment,” causing homosexuality. He points to environmental and parenting style as attributing to homosexuality, rather than biological factors. He focuses on attachment and object-relations. However, Freud provides no proof for his theories.
She also states that “we parents should act like it” too and “then maybe kids will believe” that mental health isn’t something to be ashamed of because it’s an actual illness that more people should become aware of. She also mentions that “Kip Kinkel might be out of jail and off the taxpayers tab and leading a productive life” “if only there had been a long-term intervention and medication” to help them. Overall this essay effectively represents Quindlen's standpoint on mental illness and the effects of it by it and by using similes, tone, and bias she was able to let her audience understand the seriousness of an issue many people need to become more aware
Many states are starting to limit parental rights as P. Jon White (2009), MD, director of health IT, stated in Privacy and Security Solutions that “the HIPAA Privacy Rule defers to state law as to whether a health care provider may or may not notify parents of such treatment and whether the parents have right of access to the medical records associated with such treatment.” (White, p.7). Many agree with this statement because they believe that teenagers are not brainless and that they would go to a doctor if something seemed different than normal. By letting teens make their own decisions, they think teens will become more independent and self-confident. This would stop them from making mistakes later in life.
Sex Education in Schools Comprehensive sex education courses are a controversial topic facing the educational system all around the world. Typically this course is taught in public schools starting as early as upper elementary to begin addressing sexually related topics such as puberty in both male and females, sexual health as well as sexuality. However, some educators, parents, and students argue this course should not be taught in schools at all! Which in result, is why sex education has ultimately gone nowhere as education has advanced. Factors such as religious principles, sex being viewed as an inappropriate topic as well as taboo, and sex being a topic that cannot be escaped hold the course back from becoming more, and fully providing the necessary information to understand this natural process.
Should or should we not prohibit genetically engineered babies is the question to ask. After years and year of trying to figure out the cure for a disease like a mitochondrial disease, a group of professional on the topic believes that it would greatly benefit the baby ’s outcome exceptionally if their parents has harmful genetics. Most people concern would be how the baby would turn out because there have not been any clinical trials that prove that the genetics that is engineered properly work like they should. I personally believe that the genetics of baby should not be engineered, but I do believe that it should be up to the parent of the children since it is their child in the first place.
Nature and Nurture Influence on Aggression One psychology debate that remains in today's world is the argument between nature and nurture. Scientists who study behaviors, like psychologists or sociologists, are always arguing about the topic of nature and nurture. Whether nature or nurture plays a more significant role in terms of forming us. Our personality is influenced by many factors in our life, such as the environment or the inherited genes. Some people believe that genes play a bigger part in the formation of our mental traits, such as personality.
The academic sensibility is extremely lenient, seeing misguided kids who need understanding and help more than punishment”. ("Robot Check”). (COUNTERARGUMENT) Opponents argue that juveniles should not be tried as adults because they still have the mentality of a kid and are not mature. There have been studies done by Dr. David Fassler, a psychiatry professor of the University Of Vermont College Of Medicine about juveniles making impulsive decisions.
The Wes Moore’s Success Can a person's successfulness really depend on on the way they were raised and environment they live in? Many argue that a person’s nature, other wise known as their physical surroundings, could affect how successful someone could become in their future. Others argue that it is a person's nurture that determine their successfulness. In “The Other Wes Moore,” Wes Moore, the author, and the other Wes Moore share the same name and similar lives, but only one manifested himself into a successful life. How did only one Wes Moore manage to make his life successful?
