Biology Research In Vitro Fertilization
2,054 wordsIn Vitro Fertilization (IVF), is the procedure whereby human babies are conceived, not in the womb but in a test tube or a Petri dish. This procedure has become one of the greatest developments in the world of medical technology. In Vitro Fertilization has given infertile couples the chance to conceive and bear a child from a full term of pregnancy. Without this procedure, their infertility would render them childless. There are many aspects of the IVF program that have been both praised and cri...

The laws may be changed to allow abortions completely, or to forbid them completely. Stem cells will definitely play a part in this decision. It is possible that the action of using fetuses to save lives can make abortions seem less evil. To terminate one life to save others is a decision that the world must make, and not make lightly....

As for me, not so long ago Ive read a book (science fiction), which described the lives of people in future, somewhere in 2240. This book described a human race as a race in which children are modified before their birth according to the tastes of their parents. Author pointed that such modification was not always good for a child. As for me, it was rather creepy to read. More than t...

Morality Of Cloning Vitro Fertilization
1,732 wordsMorality of Cloning Today biological science is rising on a wall of worry. No other science has advanced more during the past several decades or yielded so many palpable improvements in human welfare. Yet none except nuclear physics has aroused greater apprehensions among the general public and leaders in such diverse fields as religion, the humanities, and government. There is much discussion going on about the morality of cloning. It is undecided whether human cloning should be left to individ...

The word clone has been applied to cells as well as to organisms, so that a group of cells stemming from a single cell is also called a clone. Usually the members of a clone are identical in their inherited characteristics that is, in their genes except for any differences caused by mutation. Identical twi...

871 wordsTo clone or not to clone, that is the question. If Shakespeare were alive today, he might well have used this phrase instead of the one he chose for his play Hamlet. The question is an important one because Dr. Ian Wilmut, an embryologist from Scotland, recently stunned the world by declaring that he had cloned a lamb from the DNA of a ewe. Since the technique he used may possibly be reproduced to clone a human someday, the public outcry has been considerable, as has the question of whether our ...

Are researchers taking many unnecessary risks with all the unknown affects it could bring to the human clone and the ethics of our society today?

A person with Downs syndrome has forty-seven chromosomes instead of the usual forty-six. A relatively common genetic disorder, Downs strikes 1 out of 600 babies. In 95 percent of all cases, the disorder originates with the egg, not the sperm, and the only known risk factor is advanced maternal age-at age 35, a woman has 1 chance in 117 of having a baby with Downs; at 40, her odd...
