AA designer baby is the result from a form of bioengineering that allows one to design their child and make it the way they wish it to be. With using the method of designer baby you can prevent the chance that your child can come out with genetic disorders. At this time it is only legal to use two advancements. These advancements are determining the babies sex and screening embryos.
AAt first, creating babies too suite the parent’s needs was only a fragment of imagination. NNow creating designer babies is closer to becoming reality. DDoctors are frequently asking do legal experiments to allow them to create “Designer Babies” SSome people say they’ve already conducted experiments that were successful. SSome were not…
This would be the first realistic hope for treatment of many genetic diseases. Those whose genome contains ‘dangerous’ genes will be able to remove these genes from their children, allowing their children to live a healthier and disease-free life. Can avoid hereditary disease, (Diseases passed down through family) Its been done before, that you could avoid disorders too. One problem can be dismissed at once is the worry that the new baby will be vulnerable to hurtful medical procedures; but it won't. The cells required are taken from the umbilical cord, and nothing is done to the baby itself.
DDuring the process a number of embryos will be tested to see if they are suitable. Some embryos will be not be suitable. They will be disposed of. It is murder. IIt treats the new baby as a commodity. "Is this a wanted child or is it a child that's only being made to be a donor to its older brother?" If it was the latter, then the baby would be being treated as a commodity. EEach fertilized embryo will be assessed by the scientists. It will only be allowed to live if it is a good match; if it is a bad match it will be denied its right to life. SSome say unethical - many people say that this process is unethical, and the start of a slippery slope that leads to human cloning.
At the moment it is only legally possible to carry out two types of advanced reproductive technologies on humans. The first involves choosing the type of sperm that will fertilize an egg: this is used to determine the sex and the genes of the baby. The first involves choosing the type of sperm that will fertilize an egg: this is used to determine the sex and the genes of the baby. The second technique screens embryos for a genetic disease: only selected embryos are implanted back into the mother's womb. The second technique screens embryos for a genetic disease: only selected embryos are implanted back into the mother's womb.
In the future, the following are possible: -Choosing the child’s sex -Selecting hair color -Selecting eye color -Having parental traits such as intelligence. -Also traits such as beauty.
FFuturistic tasks of Designer Babies are illegal today. DDesigner Babies cause death if the embryo aren’t good matches, they are denied to live. PPeople who believe birth starts in this stage believe this is murder. TThe technologies of genetic modification and selection may not be safe enough to be used on humans. EEven if the technologies are safe, can they be morally defended?
Reproductive technology is now a $2billion- a-year industry, and an estimated 11,000 children a year are born after IVF treatment. In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), are test-tube babies. How much is a perfect baby worth? To an infertility specialist pulling down $625,000 a year (they are now the highest-paid of doctors), plenty.
*Select a scientist’s name to go to their conclusion
Chandler’s Opinion Dr. Chandler Siffrain, Margate Middle Laboratory
After all of this research I came up with opinions of my own. I think creating children with special and artificial features is an unessary process. Children should be born with whatever traits they should receive from their parents. I don’t have anything against people who believe in this, but in my opinion, these procedures cause to much risk to the child. Also, for those who believe life starts in the embryo, this is murder since some embryo’s aren’t good matches. In conclusion, this form of bioengenerring is isn’t nessary and shouldn’t be funded, babies are to be born naturally and not artificially nor modified. Dr. Ashley Atkins, Margate Labs
