Supporters of de-extinction reason that by studying resurrected species first hand, scientists can learn the underlying causes of extinction and the role that humans played in the destruction of both the extinct species and their natural habitats. The idea is that researchers will be able to develop countermeasures that will restore the earth’s ecosystem to its original state. This counter argument is not valid, however, for two important reasons. According to Strayer, “First because we’ve been changing our world so rapidly, a de-extinguished species won’t be restored to its former ecosystem, but to a different, sometimes radically different ecosystem” (Strayer). This statement illustrates that the damage caused by humans may very likely have cumulative effects that have occured over many centuries; therefore, it is not reasonable to assume that all of these cumulative effects can be repaired by bringing back one species at a time.
The disease raises many scientific and ethical questions. When scientists are studying ethics of Xenotransplantation and consider new technology they overlook many basic questions. They also look over the broad question that raises risks and is difficult to evaluate and is very important to consider. The organ transmission also has many risks. Since transplant patients now have to use immunosuppressants, that raises a risk to the environment.
There are chances that it may overlook many of the rules and so it is therefore very important to have an Independent review. Transparency enhances accountability. In the United States, independent evaluation of research projects is done through granting agencies, local institutional review boards , and data and safety monitoring boards. These groups also monitor the study while it is taking place in real time. Sometimes disagreement happens over the way the trials are taking place, and so it is very important to have clear consensus on any
Human genetics is a rather mysterious concept, the very genome of humanity is a code that needs to be cracked, it holds many secrets, and potentially what research has found is still just the tip of what the human race really is. It could be the files to the data that is DNA, as genetics does not just have to be what determines your appearance, your brain chemistry, and to an extent your entire way of thinking, it is much more the passing of certain immunity genes against certain diseases, features gained from environmental adaption, and even potentially skills (Or more appropriately the potential to develop skills), it is even possible Homo Sapiens aren’t even the only form of human anymore. Now this even opens the possibility of super powers/unnatural
When it is decided what is a ‘human’ then at whatever stage the embryo or baby is at then the treatment is considered to be under human rights. During the process of PGD instead of being implanted into the mother some embryos are often discarded due to them have inheritable disorders or abnormalities which could affect the offspring. For an individual who believes that a human starts when it is an embryo, the discarding of the unfavourable embryos after the results of PGD could be suggested that it is murder. This is where PGD becomes an ethical issue because is it morally acceptable to terminate a fertilised embryo which could otherwise if implanted live a happy and healthy life? Where is the fine between a human and an embryo and what is the limitation in which the process of PGD should not happen?
Contraception is still a problem of preventing a potential future of a value of life. If consider the process of contraception. There are for stages of subjects (sperm, ovum, sperm ovum separately, and sperm ovum together), so there are a lot possible that harm too many futures that may occur. The question on contraception seems to challenge the future-like-ours arguments given by the essay. This is a misleading question, because the amount of sperm is quite large, and contraception does not create a combination.
Diseases that are system oriented or infectious disorders challenge human health, with the advanced diagnostic and imaging techniques, identification of diseases (minor and major) has become easier. Appropriate precaution and treatment facilitate the long living of human beings with good quality of life. To treat the systemic illness, as well as the infectious diseases drug treatment is necessary. Drugs can be derived from synthetic chemicals as well as plant and animal origin. The pros and cons of synthetic drugs are taken in to consideration.
In order to formulate an opinion on this much controversial topic we should understand how genetic screening works and consider both the benefits and risks of this matter. Ethical, social, and medical factors all play a role in determining this. Genetic screening is where DNA samples are used to identify gene or genes related to a genetic disease or disorder. It determines risk of having or passing on a genetic disorder and detects some genes known to cause genetic disorders. Preimplantation genetic diagnosis is a specific type of genetic testing done in-vitro process.
