The destruction and use of a human embryo should not be allow to happen. Even if it isn 't fully formed from the moment is it concepted it is a human life and should be treated as such. The diseases and treatments that could come from giving up a human life are not worth it. It is giving up a life for a life. That life may not even be worth it because it takes multiple tries before the stem cells are even suitable for use in medical treatments.
Is it because technology is not advanced enough yet? Or is it just because human cloning might be too dangerous? Many scientists are trying to clone humans but is it ever justified? There are a whole lot of debates on this topic, and I am strongly against it. Human cloning is ethically wrong; there are many risks involved, which will lead to detrimental effects on human society.
The discussion on whether parents have the right to decide on the use of embryonic stem cells that are attained from their new born baby is quite an open question considering the fact that it touches religious and societal morals as a whole. The study of embryonic stem cells has taken a turn for better as scientists and they have captured the imaginations of scientists and non-scientists and has sparked a debate on whether or not attaining the stem cells in units and storing them for use on humans to help treat human beings from their illnesses and diseases and possibly rid the world of certain diseases. The two opposing sides have two different views on the way that this study should be approached. This essay will touch base on both views of the different sides and draw a conclusion from the result. Embryonic stem cells are cells that can be taken from embryos that have been fertilized through in vitro fertilization.
“Some cells mutate and cause tumors in patients.” Cells motify can form malignancy. Because you need to take cells to clone someone, it causes unusual growth of tissues which leads to a tumor. If cloning causes tumors that are much worse, than cloning should not even be allowed. When a loved one passes away it is not the best thing that can happen to anybody but cloning that person so that they can be here again will not ever be the same as if they were here alive. “Parents who have lost children have grieved and sought consultation from family community.
The controversy over stem cell research is one of the most heated and debated issues in today’s society. The higher cost of such therapy makes it an ethical concern as this will not be within our means for the ordinary person (Dresser, 2010). The costs associated with research and clinical trials will be through the roof, but these costs will reduce as time and our knowledge evolves. Once successful, it will inevitably become a trend in the future. Stem cell therapy is at its beginning stages and already we see results that we once thought were inconceivable.
Second, they’re doing this thing called human cloning. Last, the scientists should respect embryos just like they are human beings. People today are still debating if the embryonic stem cells are the best fit for the unborn. Scientists have used embryos to test on for the use of trying to find cure to diseases. The treatment may not really work but they are still putting people through risks.
Ethics of Gattaca In recent discussions of the film Gattaca by Andrew Niccol, a controversial issue has been whether pre-implantation genetic diagnosis which is diagnosing a persons diseases before they are born using their genetics is ethical. On the one hand, some argue that the use of pre-implantation genetic diagnosis is unethical. From this perspective, to discard babies who's lives would be greatly effected and much harder than others due to diseases that could be diagnosed before birth is unethical. Humans should not be able to “play God” or in other words decide another human’s fate no matter what. On the other hand, however, others argue that it is unethical not to use technology such as pre-implantation genetic diagnosis because
Doctors recommend that patients do not use their own stem cells to treat or fight off a disease as their body could be producing the wrong stem cells that will complicate things and have the same defect on the body. This is like extracting a seed of a disease from on area of the body and placing it at another area of the body, which would be useless. Whilst many religions might be against the process of cord blood banking, we do have to look at the scientific side of it all. With the confusion between embryonic stem cells and cord blood banking, many are
Even though this research might become useful in the medical field, scientists should stop embryonic research because it is not productive, and there are better ways to get the desired results. Also, it is not moral to use and destroy embryos in this way. Embryonic stem cell research may become a very useful study for medical research. Embryonic stem cells have several properties
The world of Scientology has introduced different methods of developing a fetus through insemination or by frozen embryos. This process of reproduction has developed ethical issues among the people of society. Society states that this process is abnormal and inappropriate for human kind. The process of developing a fetus should be naturally conceived through a man and woman. The development of artificial insemination and frozen embryos are not natural practices.
