These tests should be covered by medical insurance because they are not affordable for some families and they save money in the long run.

For example, women dealing with pregnancy can be informed about the current health of their baby before it is born. Also, individuals with a history of a disease can...

Attributing Human Consciousness to the Theory of Evolution is false and invalid

Anatta

From my side of the debate I will expound that the theory of evolution does not apply to the cause of human consciousness, in further detail; gradual accumulation of cognitive faculties throughout the course of time by means of ‘natural selection’ is not responsible for the difference between our self awareness and the seemingly lack thereof abound in the rest of the animal (or creature) kingdom.

Being a relatively new area in medical research, the current knowledge of gene therapy is not enough to consider it safe and effective. There have been many nightmare cases in which gene therapy created new symptoms and ultimately resulted in the death of people. Some cancers and disorders are just not able to be cured through this. Although short term, drug therapy is a tried and tested method and therefore is deemed safer. The way gene therapy works is that a virus with the correct and non-def...

DNA databases/profiling

vargas.samantha04
bryce_h_11

DNA evidence allows crimes to be more easily solved, including old cases. Searching a DNA database for a match at the crime scene identifies the suspect in 60% of the cases. Allowing DNA profiling during criminal cases would eliminate the current ethic and gender bias towards young black men. According to Nicole Jarworski at CBS company, "African Americans are imprisoned at over six times the rate of whites." By allowing DNA databases you are getting rid of the chance of innocent people be conv...
