Many Americans argue that both cloning methods are taking advantage of the way we reproduce, and that it manipulates the meaning of life. Giving life should not be just something science can come and make. It 's human life, yes I understand that cloning can help in many possible ways such as, medical issues, producing, and many more, but the fact that it can damage life itself. It 's just a big risk that we are not willing to make. For example, what good will cloning do if many scientists will not use it for medical purposes.
There has been much debate over altering D.N.A in the next generation of citizens. Many people are disagreeing over the ethics involved with gene editing. Using fairly new technology, Crispr-Cas 9, scientist can now alter D.N.A to eliminate some life threatening diseases and mutations by cutting out unhealthy strands of D.N.A, and replacing it with new ones. More controversially, scientist now have the power to change external appearance and character traits of babies, also know as “designer babies.” Genetic engineering should only be used in most dire situations, only to cure life threatening diseases. Gene editing should be regulated so people have access to screenings to look for potentially deadly diseases.
Americans find cloning an issue for religious and natural beliefs. Catholic people believe it is a sin to mess with God’s creations, and non-religious people feel that it is against our human nature to create life in a unnatural way. By creating life in a lab or some other environment where life is not usually made, angers many Americans. Religious people specifically hate the idea of messing with anything that is considered as God 's creation. Even if it is “wrong” to create life in a lab, religious people and people who are against Therapeutic cloning need to see the benefits of it.
However even though there are many benefits to designer babies some people do not want designer babies. They believe that manipulation of embryos can hurt the baby and cause imbalances in genders in addition to the belief that designing a baby will cause the parents to love the child less. Steere says, " 'This runs many risks. It 's used in many countries to avoid the birth of female children. '" These are all valid concerns but there is no need to worry.
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.
Knoepfler states, “We should not allow creating genetically modified people,because it 's just too dangerous and too unpredictable.” From the Natural Law perspective, it is interfering with the natural and beautiful process of creating life. It is humans trying to play God. As someone who believes in the good that science brings, I feel that risk designer babies bring outweigh the benefits. It will cause a divide in our society where “traditional” children will be consistently compared to genetically modified children, and it may force people to choose to Personally, I would not be comfort with participating in any assisted reproduction processes. The creation of life is sacred and should be respected and performed in the way God
In my opinion I feel this process just makes the people who want it more satisfied with their child instead of enjoying their child’s original beauty. All in all, this process helps parents get the child they always wanted but there is a price for it. To start off, let’s talk about the process. This technology can perform this task, but in order to genetically alter the embryos, geneticists have to insert genes. Geneticists have introduced a different gene to
All in all, there is a strong belief that these operations should in fact happen in terms of medical reasoning, but as for the alteration of appearances, there is more hesitation among society. If this technology progresses faster than society can handle it could potentially be disastrous. Scientists and researchers have a moral duty to keep making advancements, because that is their job but at the same time these life saving and altering techniques may either be saving us a society,
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.
It can also be very costly when trying to treating a communicable disease that could have been prevented with a vaccine. Immunization will prevent you and others from contracting a disease as well as dealing with all the expenses that come along with treating that disease. Everyone should make getting vaccinated a priority for their health and for others.
