    manipulate the embryo to try and get rid of certain diseases that can be passed down, like cancer or sickle cell for example.

It could be very possible that a child could grow up and live a perfectly healthy life, but since even the slightest chance of a child having that disease or disability, the…

    Potter Stewart once said, “Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do and what is right to do.” In the article,”Of Headless Mice…and Men” by Charles Krauthammer, it explains how it is unethical for scientists to create human clones for the sole purpose of disemboweling the body for personal needs. These human clones would be human in every form and way, however, a scientist would remove the forebrain. Although the cloning of humans would be promising for people's health…

    affiliated with this topic because people are using human embryos for science. I entirely agree with Dr. Garman about the problem with stem cell research and that certain laws are put up that help the use of stem cells in an ethical way. I also agree that stem cell research should have controversy affiliated with it as well. Even though I am entirely for stem cell research I see the other side of the controversy: scientists are using embryos which is where all humans once came from for a science…
