Designer babies are ethically wrong. Designer babies are wrong because they go against a lot of religions and peoples believe on how babies are made "naturally". (Livescience.org) Also it is ethically wrong because babies are grown in a petridish till week three of development then injected into the mother. Additionally designer babies wont have go through the natural process of birth.-DR. Joey P.(designer babies/blog.org )
Designer babies are natural. Through out time people of all religion and backgrounds have want to make a stronger, better baby. (onelife.com) The idea of making a better offspring have been around for ever. But with limited science people just found a good mate to make a good baby. But now with the advancement of science we can do what people have always want, to make a stronger, smart, more beautiful baby, to carry on their legacy and the human race.(eugenics-baby-design.com) This is not ethically wrong, is it unethical to try and make a baby that will survive? No it unethical to let babies die because there not strong enough to pass through natural selection.(eugenic-baby-design.com)
Designer baby are not natural. According to Biologydefinitions.com the definition for natural baby is a baby that sexual reproduction. 1 out of 5 designer babies are born with a genetic problem. A lot of the problems are like if the parents try to change the hair color it can turn off the gene that controls hair growth. Also 55% of all embryos planted into the mothers die before the full development.(designerbaby.org)
I understand that there are some miner problems that could happen, but isn't that true with everything. Eugenic has the possibility to STOP all future disabilities and negative mutation from every happening again in the human race. (eugenics-baby-designer.com) Also this process of getting ride of disabilities and mutation will eventually get rid of themselves but with Eugenic the human race can speed up this process of getting rid of disabilities and mutation (negative) faster. (eunics-baby-descom). I know Eugenic can be bad, like when the Nazi tried to use it. The Nazi used a radical version of Eugenic, and we all know radical things can be very bad, but what they did was try to stop insanity, disability and try to help the human race by breading humans. So even in negative light Eugenic good outcome can come from it.
As you said the Nazis did you use designer babies, and not in any good way either. One main thing that they did was inject fertilized eggs with sicknesses and types of cancers. The reason why he did that in because they wanted to see how cancers affected babies. Also they used designer babies to make clones. Hitler wanted more clones so he could grow his army bigger and stronger. The worst thing that they did was try to mate animals with humans. They did this because the wanted to make super humans.
(*History lesson) The Nazi did have major advisement to modern day science. Also the Nazi did not just do this to random people, each woman inseminated signed up for it and agreed to the procedure(so they agreed to do it.) They want to make stronger humans, but so did half the world, like I said they just were radicals. Done right eugenics can make the next generation stronger than our current generation, we can make humans closer to perfection allowing our race to grow and most importantly survive.(imsnresmet.blogspot.com). With eugenics we can make are offspring smarter, improving our chance of survival as a race, we could design doctors and scientist.(show on picture on the imsnresmet.blospot.com)
Like i said in my first point designer babies go against many religions. Many religion believe that a baby should be made natural (sex). Also doctors and scientists cant play the role of God. Why shouldn't a baby be born natural? Just because you want a baby that has to fit all your standers wont make the baby unique.(ethicalscience.org)
Well talking about religion, some religion believe that we should sacrifice humans (don't seem like neither are good). Scientist have been doing this for a while with plants and animals. We have made animals and plants more stronger so why wouldn't we want to do that to are own specie. (helix.northwestern.edu). We could add IGF-I gene to humans and like mice it would enlarge are muscle and strength us or we could add PPAR-S to humans to allow us to burn fat faster destroying obesity. (Onelife.com) This isn't playing God, this is trying to survive
Okay should it be fair for only the rich families to be able to make a designer baby. Why should the poor or middle class be able to make to design a baby they want. A normal naturally made baby take around 10$ to 100$ to make and a designer babies costs from 180,000$ and up. (designerbabies.org)
First I thought just making babies was free, I guess it can cost $100 if you buy a prostitute. But of course designer babies are going to cost a lot now, but that is only because it is such a new procedure. Give time and pretty soon everyone will be able do do this.( dnalc.org) This is just like every new innovation it expensive at first but then after a while every one has one or does it, Like the television, when it first came out not many people could afford one but a few years(20 years) later 98% of people in America has one in their house.(http://www.nyu.edu...) So just give Eugenics time and you will see how cheaper and acceptable it will becomes. And it make sense that it is expensive now because it can stop all major disabilities, negative mutation also it can make humans stronger and smarter.
