On The Issues Involved in Genetic Engineering:
Genetic Engineering has been a hot topic in the media ever since Dolly, the cloned sheep, was successfully engineered. Since then we have seen a variety of clones made as well as several advances in medicine afforded by genetic engineering. The debate on the subject has brought a great deal of criticism with it, however. Along with legitimate concerns in the field of science, moral issues are also involved. People are concerned that this new technology is dangerous if not regulated properly. Others are confused to whether clones are deserving of rights. Others are unsure whether the benefits of genetic research outweigh the costs they believe exist. Some ask how successful is the new technology in combating and curing disease, enhancing life, and improving the Human Condition. Here we will examine the issues involved by presenting differing opinions on the subject of genetic engineering.
