Genetic engineering has a fine line to when it becomes unethical. Ethically new research has offered to help people with disabilities and prevent them to better a persons life. The line is drawn when parents have the choice to modify their child through genomics, This may seem fine, but unfortunately parents are bettering their children to either make them smarter or more athletic. This modification endangers the child's life by unbalancing their original balance. Genomics allows a person to have their DNA modified to enhance them in certain areas such as sports or academics. Unfortunately these enhancements can have side effects that harm or endanger the life of that person. The process of modifying someone can be done while in the womb if the parents so choose, which arouses the question of is it right to endanger a life without consent of that life? They did not ask to be changed, Like in Frankenstein “when the monster questions victor of why he created him?” (shelly). Genetic engineering should not be allowed, only in cases to sustain or better a life.
Scientist have already performed the process of genetically engineering. Jason Barrit and Jacques Cohen are both scientist who have developed seventeen fetuses using genetic engineering, which two of the fetuses were fatalities. The two fetuses developed turners syndrome and ended up being aborted (Fatal Flaw). This possibly could have been avoided if the engineering had not been done. Is it ok without the two lives consent to proceed and end up harming them, or in this case ending with a fatality. Why would someone go to great lengths just do encounter serious problems such as promoted and continue to do so?
Scientist at Oregon Health and Science University have the ability to clone a human being and make copies of other people. Sean O’Malley a catholic bishop stated, “Treats human beings as products.”(Fatal Flaw) Created for what people want like a car or a motorcycle. Cloning is not a normal process such as having a kid between two people of opposite genders. Although...
