Genetic Engineering – An ethical argument

As the author of The decline and fall of the Roman Empire, Edward Gibbon, stated All that is human must retrograde if it does not advance. As we transcend into the 21st century, we can all look around us and see that transformations have been brought about in nearly every aspect of our lives. We […]

The Promise of Genetic Engineering

David Duong Ms. Glassow English Honors I November, 1998 A girl is born without Tay-Sachs disease, a devasting genetic disorder that has decimated a lot of babies worldwide. A leukemia patient has defective bone marrow replaced with healthy bone marrow that was cloned from tissue from her own cells. These futuristic scenarios are not part […]

Genetic Engineering

Anti-technologists and political extremists misinform, and over exaggerate statements that genetic engineering is not part of the natural order of things. The moral question of genetic engineering can be answered by studying human evolution and the idea of survival of the fittest. The question of safety can be answered by looking at the current precautions […]

Genetic Engineering: A leap in to the future or a

leap towards destruction?IntroductionScience is a creature that continues to evolve at a much higher rate than the beings that gave it birth. The transformation time from tree-shrew, to ape, to human far exceeds the time from an analytical engine, to a calculator, to a computer. However, science, in the past, has always remained distant. It […]

Genetic engineering 2

Genetic Technology and the betterment of our world What exactly is genetic engineering? A simple definition of genetic engineering is “the ability to isolate DNA pieces that contain selected genes of other species”(Muench 238). Genetic engineering has been the upcoming field of biology since the early nineteen seventies. The prosperous field has benefits for both […]

Genetic Engineering: Friend or Fiend

A deliberate alteration to the gene of a living organisms e.g. animals, plants, or bacteria to change their characteristics, is said to be genetically modified. [2] It involves the combining of genes from different organisms to make a new gene, which would be placed inside the DNA of the species to be manipulated. E.g. a […]

Designer Babies: The Promises and Perils of Genetic Engineering

It is hard to deny the enormous potential advantages of genetic engineering, at least speaking strictly from a utilitarian point of view. But the rapidity with which this science is progressing makes it difficult to assess its validity, and its dangers, as well as its usefulness. Besides, it touches some very intricate and complicated issues […]

The Rights of Americans to Have GMO Labeling

Most people have heard of the term ‘GMO’ at least once in the past few years, but what does it actually mean? The term GMOs, or Genetically Modified Organisms, is referring to the altering of genes in plants or animals that result in an ‘enhanced’ product that would not normally be found in nature (The […]

Evaluate the arguments, for and against GM crops

Genetically modified organisms are organisms in which DNA has been changed in a way that does not occur naturally. It is often called genetic engineering, and it also allows selected individual genes to be transferred from one organism into another. Such methods are used to create/grow GM crops. However the use of GM crops has […]
