Many researchers and scientists use their research to formulate their opinions and to persuade the general public, while human rights activists use their beliefs, emotions, and possible scenarios to persuade others. Bioethicist Paul Root Wolfe is well-known as well as well-respected in his field, and he encourages the audience to consider bio-engineering along with its current uses through his TED talk, “It’s Time to Question Bio-Engineering”.
