There have been technological advancements in the recent years, and the majority of countries in the world has witnessed this. One of the most interesting advancements in the biomedical sector has been the invention of designer babies. Designer babies refer to a wide range of reproductive techniques such as replacing versions of genes linked to certain diseases and enhancing certain attributes in a baby. These adjustments, however, are not ethically right since God’s work is termed to be perfect.
Genes are a complex part of human life, and make each of us different and special. But what if there was a choice where you could genetically alter your child, making them disease free and astonishing athletes? It sounds almost too good to be true, to have your very own designer baby. For the good of human species, we should be allowed to alter human genetics. With all these amazing abilities and unlimited changes we could make to our children, it would be like shopping for clothes at a mall. This may sound like a dream come true, but it can lead to many problems in the near future. Trying to change human genes takes away each person's own individuality, and could cause people to segregate the people who were not genetically altered. Even if it can make beautiful, healthy children, it has too many problems than benefits to actually be any good for humans.
Legally this could cause many problems and issues because although this could help many things could go wrong as well and potentially not work and end the child's life or if they do end up getting diseases parents can start sueing for a lot of money and can make the gene modifying seen as a bad thing entirely.
Among the few benefits are humans that have limited diseases, families that have children that they can raise into adulthood that never would have had this opportunity before, and options that have never existed before. The process is dangerous in the sense that it can quickly get out of hand. Putting limits on designer babies is the key. Humans are only humans, not perfect beings. The thought of trying to create a perfect human sounds very ridiculous. No matter how many operations and procedures one baby is given, they can only be a human. Limits and regulations should be applied to genetic mutations to end the possibility of getting out of hand. A baby should not be able to have every part of them changed, what good would this do for the parents or for the baby? A baby is only a baby, no matter what. A baby will have no choice in the way they are mutated. The process, as advancing as it may be, may lead to many issues in the future. This means that we must be wary in the proceeding
You may have not thought about issues that come along with genetics and the genetic makeup of a human being. This includes but not limited to how your child will look, will the offspring have your features, the fathers features, or even one of the grandparents' features. This has caused many stakeholders to debate on whether genetic engineering should be allowed and to what extent. Meaning, should we be able to design our children based on how we want them to look or to prevent them from obtaining some detrimental conditions? Most would base their opinions on the “fun” part of designing your baby and how cool that may seem. In a study by Salah, Yaz, a publisher for Emaze
Day by day, an accretion of advancements and improvements are formed across the world. Prominent developments occur rapidly, like the use and creation of technology. Technology has and continues to create an immense effect on how we live our daily lives. Its use is ranged from how information is found, travel, communication, and more. However, the advancements of technology seems to interfere with the circle of natural life, life that is brought into our world. It has changed the lives of unborn children, whom are in the form of an embryo. Altered by a new technique and process of genetic modification, that is commonly referred to as “Designer Babies”. This genetic modification, genetically modifies the DNA of an embryo to achieve desirable traits amongst them. It changes an unborn babies development and future life. While it may seem that designer babies can be a positive life change, there are negative effects that outweigh, due to the fact that it goes against human nature; genetic probability, expectations, diversity, and religious prospects.
If it is possible to cure genetic disorders in unborn children, then why does this dilemma exist? Designer babies may offer a solution for many parents faced with an uncertain future. The term “Designer Babies” refer to children who develop from embryos that are selected, or genetically modified in vitro (outside of the human body, usually in a laboratory). While emerging technology is constantly improving the daily lives of mankind, the scientists involved in this branch of science have fallen under great scrutiny despite their best effort to contribute to society. As a developing science, the exploration of genetic editing has potential to direct humanity to a radiant future. Financially funding and
I’m treated differently than everyone else because of my race. I don’t understand it, though, because I look exactly the same as my peers. They mock me and tell me I’m inadequate, fake, and alive only due to the organ crisis. I tell them I have no idea what they are talking about, because my doctors told me that I’m just like everyone else. They laugh in my face and spit on me, ruthless in their play. I run home to my living center and cry myself to sleep.
Ever feel terrified of what the future of genetics is? Perhaps designer babies? But, maybe no one has stated the wonderful possibilities it has and its outcomes. This has made the scientific technologies in genetics help us as us humans. Our civilization has become majorly advanced just by using genetics; and it isn’t as harmful as it sounds. We can save babies and have them personalized to how we would want them to be. Our society would be so much sophisticated. Using genetics to create designer babies is a tremendous decision to make, so the human race can advance.
Technology has had a huge affect on us humans in how we live our lives starting from anywhere between how we come up or find information to how we have the ability to travel the world. Technology seems to slowly be used for more and more lately, It’s important for us as humans not to overuse or abuse the technology we were given because it may have a negative effect on society and the lives of our loved ones. We have come across a new system of genetic engineering known as “Designer Babies” which genetically modifies DNA to set a goal of creating enhanced traits for the babies to grow up with. What people need to understand is that this expensive process can ultimately change their life. What may seem beneficial
A good thing of having a designer baby is that the baby won’t have any problems it will live happy that it is immune to dangerous diseases. Designer babies can be the future of humanity they can be smarter, more fit and healthy it can help society in a good way. Either way instead of designer baby’s there is gene modification.
The act of genetically designing babies has been beneficial in The past and may continue to be in the near future.Creating designer babies are beneficial to the society in many ways.Creating designer babies has the possibility of preventing genetic disease,provide a tissue match or stem cells for a sick sibling or help infertile couples to have a baby.“….many more couples have created their own designer baby to save their sick child or prevent their offspring from inheriting a certain genetic disease.”To begin,since the year 2000 designer babies have been created to save the lives of other children. They have been created to prevent genetic disease that may be passed down. the last thing a parent would want is for their child to have a genetic
For many years, the idea of being able to design and choose your children has long been a topic of science fiction. But rapid progress in genetics is making the idea of ‘designer children’ possible. A designer child is a baby whose genetic make-up has been selected in order to eradicate a particular defect, or to ensure that a particular gene is present. This can be used to improve the health of the baby, or enhancing particular genes to make the child achieve better in a particular area. These babies are also described as genetically modified, where the child contains genetic material that has been artificially altered so as to produce a desired characteristic. Despite the seemingly beneficial results, there are many negative as well as positive aspects to this new technique.
“What Color Eyes? How Tall? Designer Babies on the Way. In my own words I believe the functionalist will view the world as a robot factory if the designer babies were ever created. Everyone will began to look alike if many people decide to used this method of creating their own babies. There will also be no reason in which order need to be place in the world because every person will have similar qualities and no reason to learned or share or build anything with its community, most importantly the different relationship that are formed throughout society. The people who will focus on the access of this procedures would be people who couldn't afford the cost or time that it will take to create a designer babies. The symbolic interactionist
Picture this: your family has type 1 diabetes in their genes. You know that if you ever want to have a kid, they will most likely develop diabetes. You have it yourself and know how hard it is to have to monitor your diet all the time. You can’t eat at most restaurants, you have to give yourself a shot after every meal, and there is nothing you can do about it. Imagine you could save your child from this horror. You could genetically engineer your child and prevent them from hereditary diabetes. There are countless situations like this genetic engineering can fix. Thus, designing babies is beneficial and should be regulated.
