    Gattaca "What is genetic engineering, after all, but preemptive plastic surgery? Make the child perfect in the test tube, and save money later". ~ Roger Ebert 'Imagine a society where everyone is more intelligent and healthier than you. Imagine a society where your genetic makeup-engineered or natural-determines the job for which you are eligible, whether or not you can be insured, and who associates with you. "-Dave RettigAt a time when we read about cloned sheep and the unraveling of the human...

  • Possibilities Of Genetic Engineering
    860 words
    DNA: The Stuff Life is Made Of In 1995, at the Roslin Institute, near Edinburgh, Scotland, the birth of two lambs heralded what many scientists believe to be a period of revolutionary opportunities in biology and medicine. Megan and Morag, both carried fully to term by a surrogate mother, were not produced from the union of a sperm and an egg. Instead, their genetic material came from cultured cells originally developed from a nine-day-old embryo. That made Megan and Morag genetic copies, or clo...

  • Human Genetics
    1,897 words
    On the approach to the second millennia, 'cloning' and the ability to manipulate and modify DNA has increased immensely. The field of genetic reproduction is creating a variety of unknown social and ethical consequences that are particular to our present time. Such consequences, although unknown now, of the manipulation of nature at such a primary biological level will have disastrous effects on the generations of the future. Cloning as a new science, concerns itself with the replication of orga...

With it, we can bring upon an evolution of our species which we decide, eliminate genetic defects, cure ...
  • Brave New World Of Genetic Technology
    1,778 words
    Unregulated Genetic Technology Threatens to Dehumanize Society When James Watson and Francis Crick discovered the structure of DNA in 1959, they could not have known that their discovery would one day lead to the possibility of a human factory that is equipped with the capabilities to mass produce perfectly designed, immortal human beings on a laboratory assembly line. Of course, this human factory is not yet possible; genetic technology is still in its infancy, and scientists are forced to spen...
  • Example With The Use Of Genetic Engineering
    1,101 words
    Throughout history, man has been improving his race through technology. Several of these advances have been questionable, but none are close to a certain technology today. A technology that splices, alters, and manipulates genes from one individual to produce desired characteristics in the same individual... the technology of genetic engineering. This technological tool is undoubtedly changing societys relationship with nature, medicine, and perhaps its own cultural values. The twenty-first cent...
  • Genetic Modifications The Church
    1,413 words
    Search for Human Christian Values 11/22/00 A relatively recent issue, genetic engineering has nevertheless become an important enough internationally to cause public debates. The issue is complex, involving many parts and, of course numerous ethical concerns. Some of the parts enveloped by genetic engineering are cloning, modifications of genetic traits, and bioengineering of plants and certain animal to yield better crop and product. Much can be done using genetic engineering. Although we have ...
  • Discoveries In Genetic Engineering
    1,030 words
    Like all other great moral issues, there is no permanent consensus as to whether genetic engineering is to our benefit or not. Views from two diametrically opposed standpoints have been given; and even in the same field, the degree of opinions varies. This leads one to wonder: Is there no middle ground Science has made tremendous progress in the past century alone. Yet, the age-old conflict remains "the struggle between science and ethics, the tension between what can be and what should be, the ...
  • 1 Web Genetic Diversity
    352 words
    1 web Genetic diversity is precious and should not be touched, even with the overwhelming temptation to do so. The gathering of genetic knowledge does not guarantee wisdom in deciding about human diversity. (Suzuki, Genetics, 345-346) A generalization must, then, occur. Every decision involves human beings as the decision makers and these persons must live with the consequences. Also, most decisions involve choices between different outcomes and humans are likely to place different values on dif...
  • Entire Genetic Blueprint Of The Human Being
    482 words
    Genetic engineering is the directed alteration of genetic material by intervention in the genetic process. People around the world are coming to the realization that genetic engineering is taking over every aspect of their daily lives, their supermarkets and even local hospitals. Soybean, maize, rapeseed oil, sugar beet, squash, cucumber vitamins, antibiotics, and even births. By now most everyone in the U.S. has probably eaten GM foods in some form. Because the FDA makes no distinction between ...

    Last updated: June 30, 1998 Should Cloning Be Banned Since Scottish scientists reported the successful cloning of a sheep named Dolly last year, new research into cloning has grown rapid - as has the ethical controversy surrounding the procedure. In May 1998, scientists at a Massachusetts cell research firm announced the production of genetically identical calves using a new cloning technology that could make it possible to create "designer" cattle. And in June, buzz about the successful cloning...
  • Genetic Engineering On Humans
    1,320 words
    Genetic engineering should not be done on humans. It is immoral and harmful in our society. This form of technology allows genetic engineers and research doctors to modify a human being's physical and mental capabilities. Genetic engineers could alter an individual's characteristic and other human features. Genetic engineering has given these scientists the power to alter the very basis of life on earth. Genetic engineering on humans is immoral and very heinous. It breaks the barrier of ethics b...
  • Emotional Effects Of Genetic Engineering
    862 words
    Genetic Engineering Within the last two decades scientists have developed several new techniques, which manipulate and alter the genes found in the cells of living organisms. This wonder of the century, genetic engineering has turned heredity -the passing of inheritable characteristics from parent to off spring- from a natural, random event into a process that can be artificially controlled and exploited. It has the potential of giving humanity unprecedented power over life itself, and it has th...
