    If the embryo is a human person, killing it to benefit others is a clear-cut evil. It treats a distinct human being, with his or her own inherent moral worth, as nothing more than a disposable instrument to be used for someone else’s benefit.” (“Ten Problems with Embryonic Stem Cell Research.”). This quote explains everything that is wrong with stem cell research. Killing not born babies yet to make another baby immune to one virus. So for every embryo they kill they make a few embryos immune to…

    Chris Ahmad Phil 116 Paper #1 Human embryos are organisms in early stages of life, typically the first to eighth week of development, and are created by the fertilization of an egg with a sperm. In terms of the argument at hand, early embryos are of interest (14 days after fertilization). They can be obtained in numerous ways and are useful in many types of research, especially medical treatment, due to the fact that they are a source of pluripotent stem cells that are able to divide into many…

    Can a cure be found by using three to five day old embryos? Stem cell research has been going through a debate for the past decade whether it’s ethically or unethically to be using Embryonic Stem cells. Some groups seem to think embryonic should be used to lives and other seem believe they should be laid to rest. Scientists are working round the clock to progress the lives of people, experimenting with different types drugs in order to do so. However, they are also using organic materials as…

    Embryonic development is the changes an embryo undergoes as it grows toward a developed organism. In early embryonic development, the first stage begins with fertilization, when the female egg fuses with the male sperm to create a zygote (Biology.OpenStax.1753). After a zygote is formed, cleavage (unusually large cell) converts the zygote to a multicellular organism (embryo) by rapidly dividing a single cell (each the same size) to form a hollow ball of cells, called a blastula. The next stage…

    Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a method used prior to implantation to help identify genetic defects within embryos created through in vitro fertilization. This procedure is used to help prevent particular diseases or disorders from being passed on to the infant (American Pregnancy Association). Science cannot only help couples that are unable to have babies, but it can help them have babies they want. However, where should the line be drawn for modern reproductive medicine? (Kalb…

    Embryo Pros And Cons

    The issue that I am going to write my paper over is about genetically engineered embryos and whether or not further research should be done to allow the altering of an unborn fetus. My first topic that came to my mind when I heard about this assignment was actually abortion. Then we were shown a list of banned topics and abortion was number one on the list which was disappointing. Later when we went to the library to search for our topics, I ran across an article that interested me. It was about…

    Gastrulation “is a process in early development in which an embryo’s cells migrate to form three layers of tissue: the endoderm, the mesoderm, and the ectoderm” (Krogh, 2011, p. 620). The movement of cells during this phase will help to develop the embryo. After all movement have been completed the cells will configure themselves into the three different layers. Each of these layers will have an assign role in the inside, outside, and the middle of the process. The three layers will help to…

    First, they are fertilized. Each egg contains a single embryo, which then begins to grow. Each embryo measures approximately 100 µm in diameter when it first begins to grow (Magalhães et al. 2003). The embryo reaches the blastula stage between 10 to 23 hours after the eggs are laid (Mitasato et al. 2012). From here, the snails grow rapidly, and by the third day have…

    This study pertains to the health of women and embryo, preconception and during pregnancy, when exposed to potentially teratogenic drugs. Stated in the introduction of the study, teratogenic drugs may in fact pose a major threat to the embryo due to its destructive nature in some cases. These drugs are capable of causing abnormal changes to the normal growth of the embryo or fetus, thus leading to improper function and/or structure. At such early stages of growth, these changes are almost…
