Designer Babies Although knowing what and how your child would look and act, it is not morally right to change God 's will due to genetic research engineering. Genetic engineering could cause a lot of problems, examples include; causing a gap in society, losing individuality, and termination of the embryo. The child cannot consent to having its body and life altered. The process To begin the process the doctor needs an embryo. The mother 's egg and the father 's sperm are put into a dish to fertilize.
PGD is intended for couples at high risk of having children with certain genetic disorders. It is not intended to choose one sex over another; however, clinics in the United States have stated that they let parents choose the sex without any medical reason (Jabr, 2013). In today’s society, in vitro fertilization of babies without disorders is frowned upon; however, once in vitro fertilization of any baby was frowned upon. Science is constantly changing the standards of society. With new technology and facts comes new opinions.
Not all of the stem cells are controversial. Mostly the only one that people don’t approve of is the Embryonic Stem cell transplant. Embryonic Stem Cell Research is when scientist take cells from aborted fetuses or fertilized eggs and use then for medical research purposes. This causes controversy because it is against most people 's religion to get abortions. Even if it not against their religion, some people still do not like the idea of taking stem cells from aborted babies and putting them into sick people.
Some believe that the virus that is being vaccinated against is alive in the vaccines, while others just have personal beliefs. Parents will let their unvaccinated child be treated for a brain infection, that was caused by a preventable disease, with weeks of IV antibiotics, yet still say no to vaccinations. If a parent did not provide their child with the right medical attention for a broken bone, child protective services would most likely apprehend the child and the parent could be charged with negligence. Many people have double standards when it comes to vaccinations and medical treatment. There is a very common misconception that vaccinations are optional.
Society has made an effect on every person, it could affect you positively or negatively. Mildred, Montag’s wife, in the book Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, is not the world’s best wife. Society has brought her down to this level because the community does not want the civilians to be thinking for themselves. It is as if the generation is being controlled with what they are able to say, or even do. These people are not allowed to live their own lives because of the fact that the society doesn’t want them to do so.
IV.800). If Telemachus is murdered before he is even able to become a successful hero, it reflects negatively on Penelope’s ability to raise children because it shows that she is unable to raise a son worthy of being a hero. Instead of inquiring about how she may be able to prevent Telemachus’ death, Penelope is worried about how Telemachus’ death will represent her as a mother and her ability to raise children. Consequently, Penelope’s actions suggest that, in addition to being concerned over Telemachus, Penelope has personal issues that she is troubled by. Subsequently, a nurse, Eurycleia, comes to Penelope’s aid and advises her to pray to the Gods to help Telemachus.
Cloned people have rights and feelings too and human cloning is against human rights. For example, in this article the author states, “The cloning of human beings, however, should be permanently banned, as an offense to human dignity. The practice raises the possibility of babies born to bypass normal family structures, or to please parents’ vanity, or to serve as providers of “spare parts” for sick relatives…The Pontifical Academia Pro Vita’s 1997 report “Reflections on Cloning” notes: ‘The difference should again be pointed out between the conception of life as a gift of love and the view of the human being as an industrial product.’” (Badertscher). The author's statement implies that human cloning is used to please parents’ need of having their own family and that it is taking the uniqueness and the human rights away from the cloned child. Human cloning can produce an exact copy of the person that it was cloned from, meaning that asexual reproduction can be possible in the near future.
In fact, it is proven that babies can feel pain during an abortion. I believe abortions should be outlawed, as they are unethical for many reasons. One of the reasons abortion should be illegal is because human life does not start once a person is born, nor when the heart starts beating, but at conception. After conception, the baby grows and develops for about nine months, but this does not mean the baby is any less human than anyone else. In addition, it has been proved repeatedly that human life starts at conception.
That being said, the effects of late-term abortion are blown far out of proportion in just another effort of scaring young women away from making their own decisions about their own uterus’. Another thing that scares the women from having late-term abortions done is the fear that the baby will survive the abortion attempt after undergoing the entirety of the process. Some women (and men) believe that after a fetus undergoes an abortion procedure, but still happens to make it out alive that they are murdered. Not true. By law, if an aborted fetus is born alive, the doctors and nurses are supposed to do everything in their power to keep that baby alive and to give that baby a chance at a healthy life.
Scientists are not only hurting animals in the process but also putting patients’ in danger. “(W) e have cured mice of cancer for decades”...”It simply didn’t work on humans” (Moore2). It is just a poor predictor of their effect on humans (Hamil 2). Our world has been introduced to so many new methods as to where we can simulate human’s reaction to different experiments. Making a new and safe environment would not only help the animals, but also put less emotional stress on the scientists.
